 Chelsea settle on they would rather sign £87m striker instead of Ivan Toney next year

 Chelsea settle on they would rather sign £87m striker instead of Ivan Toney next year

According to reports, Chelsea would prefer sign Victor Osimhen of Napoli than Ivan Toney of the Premier League.

According to 90min, the Nigerian international tops the club’s transfer wish list for a striker in the upcoming transfer window.

This season, the Serie A player is clearly firing on all cylinders. In 11 league matches, he has nine goals and two assists, helping his side to the top spot in Italy.

He and fellow Chelsea target Khvicha Kvaratskhelia have been the star players for the Champions League group-winning squad that included Premier League powerhouse Liverpool.

While fans should be pleased that their club is rumored to be pursuing the signing of a player of Osimhen’s caliber, some may be unhappy that their scouts are not prioritizing a move for a star from closer to home.

Chelsea prefer Osimhen to Toney

Despite not being selected by Gareth Southgate for the England World Cup roster, Toney displayed his class against Manchester City this past weekend.

The Nigerian international Osimhen tops the club’s transfer wish list for a striker in the upcoming transfer window.

A brace from the Brentford player gave the Bees a sensational victory at the champions’ home, prompting many to sing his praises.

This includes Reece James, who implied that the decision not to bring him to the World Cup was, to say the least, a bit of a mistake.

However, according to 90min, the Blues would prefer to acquire Osimhen, who is having his greatest season to date for the Serie A club.

It has previously been claimed that bringing the 23-year-old to Stamford Bridge may cost about £87 million.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Armando Borja unable to produce goals, Chelsea might undoubtedly benefit from buying a striker in the upcoming transfer windows.
