One of the most sought-after attackers going into the summer transfer window is Victor Osimhen, whom Chelsea appears poised to attempt and sign from Napoli. Jose Mourinho has instructed Osimhen on what has to be done for him to finalize a move to the Premier League. The 24-year-old’s future at Napoli is becoming more and more uncertain as other elite European teams, including Chelsea, are rumored to be interested in signing him.
According to Football. London, the Blues’ primary priority for this summer is to buy a striker. Over the years, Didier Drogba has been difficult for Chelsea to replace, with only Diego Costa and Olivier Giroud coming close to playing the Ivorian’s target-man position.
Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Pierre-Emerick Aubamyeang were all tried by the west Londoners, but none of them were nearly as successful. Osimhen is reportedly one of the names being considered, with the residents of west London in desperate need of a talisman.
The Napoli striker must heed Mourinho’s counsel if he wants to challenge himself in England’s top division. The Roma manager was cited by Goal as saying, “He is on the same level as Drogba, but Didier didn’t dive. Victor can change, so that’s fine. If I had a lot of money and was in a club, I would buy him. He must, however, change if he ever moves to England because, unlike in the Premier League, where they would punish him severely, people in Italy put up with this kind of behavior.
Mourinho went on to say what he said to Osimhen when they met in Naples. I advised him to avoid diving so frequently after his fantastic goal, he added. He’s a great player since he scored a wonderful goal and did the same thing when we met earlier this season. However, he must not dive.
Osimhen is an “exciting talent,” according to Glen Johnson, but the former Chelsea defender felt that Osimhen hasn’t done enough to merit comparisons to Didier Drogba. Victor Osimhen remarked in an interview with Lord Ping that he is currently scoring at an alarming rate and that it is impossible to overlook the fact that he is currently falling short of a goal per game. He is difficult to compare to Drogba because Drogba was a monster for Chelsea! In the Premier League, he was quick, powerful, and had good technical skills. Osimhen is a talented individual who is aware of the end goal. He will succeed in the Premier League if he can adjust.
