“Many friends of mine are Chelsea fans”- Napoli’s Victor Osimhen makes Premier League admission amid transfer links

Chelsea target Victor Osimhen reveals he only has Manchester United and Chelsea jersey

The most sought-after striker, Victor Osimhen, who continues to be linked with an exit from Napoli, revealed he only has two jerseys in his wardrobe.

Given that the Nigerian striker stated he only owns shirts from Manchester United and Chelsea, it may convey a different message to both teams. Osimhen has developed into a proficient striker in recent years.

His prolific season last term has already seen a few clubs queue for his signing, including Chelsea. The West Londoners are among the clubs heavily keen on acquiring the Napoli hitman.

The Blues have been desperate for his services, which has seen them put pressure on the Italian club with many approaches for the striker, and they may finally make an offer in the next summer window.

Osimhen is a type of centre-forward that the West Londoners believe can help Chelsea with their enduring goal-scoring issues. Chelsea have struggled to find a reliable striker throughout the years.

In an interview, when the 24-year-old revealed he only has Chelsea and United jerseys, it might send an optimistic message that he may want to play for one of the two clubs if he leaves Napoli, (h/t Mirror) he also claimed on The Obi One Podcast:

“I don’t have a favourite Premier League team, but I’ve got two jerseys: Chelsea and Manchester United. Many of my friends support Chelsea, while only a few support Manchester United. The Premier League is the most appreciated league by every African player; it’s a huge league.”

It makes it obvious which Premier League team he prefers, and it may encourage the Blues to pursue him in the summer. He is a remarkable striker who has the ability to ease our lives in front of the goal. He disclosed that to Didier Drogba his idol. He is not yet in his prime, so he is at the ideal age to win a lot of titles if he joins, especially considering how quickly the team is improving.

However, since he also has a United jersey, we may anticipate that they will compete to sign him. So it remains to be seen how things develop in the future.
