Chelsea’s pursuit of Napoli forward Victor Osimhen appears to face setbacks, with Napoli’s president revealing that the player is on the verge of signing a contract extension.
Despite Osimhen’s remarkable contributions to Napoli, speculation about his departure has persisted.
While Chelsea was rumored to be interested in the striker, Napoli has reportedly set a £130m price tag on his services, potentially deterring any immediate move.
President Aurelio De Laurentiis has now indicated that Osimhen is close to finalizing a contract extension, making a mid-season transfer less likely.
Other clubs, including Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, may redirect their attention to alternative targets due to the high asking price.
