4 Chelsea stars ft. Romelu Lukaku identified as candidates for swap deal to sign 25-year-old labelled as a ‘force of nature’

Chelsea use surplus to target Osimhen

There are a plethora of striking options at Chelsea, despite their aim to sign a new marquee number nine in the ongoing summer transfer window. While the West Londoners search for their forward needs, they also need to find potential suitors for current surplus options at Stamford Bridge. 

In search of a buyer club, the Blues have landed on Napoli, who would be looking to recruit a new face up front after they are looking to sell Victor Osimhen. The West Londoners can use this as an opportunity to not only land one of the most fearsome strikers in Europe but also dispose of surplus at Cobham.

Napoli are looking at a potential €100 million fee to sell the Nigerian striker, and the Blues are looking at potential smart ways to make this transfer happen. The West Londoners have offered multiple players to the Italian side for a possible move, per Football. London

The Blues are potentially looking to offer two of Romelu Lukaku, Trevoh Chalobah, Armando Broja, and Cesare Casadei to land Osimhen, per TEAMtalk

Romelu Lukaku has been successful during his stint in Italy with multiple clubs, and a deal to land the Belgian striker while parting ways with Osimhen would be a win-win situation for Napoli. A cash-plus-swap transfer would be ideal for Italy to land the former Manchester United striker’s signature. 

The Blues have wasted no time in backing Enzo Maresca, as the West Londoners have already secured five new players at the Bridge. Tosin Adarabioyo, Marc Guiu, Omari Kellyman, and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall have signed at the Bridge already and more players are expected to come through the doors this window. 

Chelsea have been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market, who are investing in a long-term project this summer, and signing a marquee striker like Osimhen would be a big boost to their project. The 25-year-old was regarded as a ‘force of nature’ after his exploits for Napoli.
