Breaking News: Chelsea Swap Christian Pulisic For World-Class Victor Osimhen

May 12, 2023

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic is reportedly on Napoli’s radar for a possible transfer and could be used as part of a deal for Victor Osimhen to go the other way.

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic has reportedly been targeted by new Serie A champions Napoli for a potential summer transfer.

As a result, Napoli’s interest in the American winger could help Chelsea strike a deal for the Partenopei’s top scorer Victor Osimhen.

Pulisic is one of a number of Chelsea players expected to leave Stamford Bridge as the Blues look to trim their bloated squad ahead of next season.

The Daily Mail claim that Juventus, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are also interested in Pulisic, but Chelsea are more likely to do a deal with Napoli in the hope that he could be used as leverage in a deal for Osimhen.

The Italian club are said to value Osimhen at around £130m, but Financial Fair Play restraints mean Chelsea would need that price to come down, and adding Pulisic into the deal could help.

The extremely high valuation has put Bayern Munich off pursuing a deal, so should Osimhen leave, the Premier League is his only likely destination, with Manchester United also keeping tabs.
