Chelsea Target Nigerian Striker As Potential Alternative To Osimhen

Chelsea Target Nigerian Striker As Potential Alternative To Osimhen

Chelsea could look to Bayer Leverkusen striker Victor Boniface as a potential alternative to compatriot Victor Osimhen.

The Blues are in the market for a striker as Senegalese international, Nicolas Jackson, has not yet had the desired impact at London club.

Chelsea are therefore looking to once again dive into the transfer market with Osimhen their priority target for that position.

But the Blues will face stiff competition from PSG, who appear to have listed Osimhen as the heir to Real Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe.

So, Chelsea may have to get a bit more creative with their targets and it appears that they have already identified one potential new striker option.

Already reported by BILD several days ago, the German outlet’s chief transfer expert Christian Falk has now reiterated that Chelsea are keeping tabs on Boniface.

“Nicolas Jackson has not yet managed to solve the striker problem at Chelsea,” Falk told CaughtOffside.

“Someone else could do that in the future: Victor Boniface, [he] came from Saint-Gilloise in 2023 for €16m…Contract until 2028. Current market value €40m. Chelsea are tempting, but Bayer don’t want to sell him.”

Boniface has scored 16 goals and eight assists in 23 games in all competitions prior to suffering an adductor injury that will keep him sidelined for another couple of months.

    Osimehn might struggle to get a club at that his fee,if he doesn’t step up,he doesn’t play football like 100 million pounds player,gets easily tired these days,poor passing,can’t score goals,he firing on all cylinders last year ,don’t know if he is overwhelmed by fame or what.dude needs to buckle up

    • U be big mumu . At ur age wat av u achieved. U just come here come rant .

    • Dude, like seriously? Enzo Fernandez, Moise Caicedo, Eden hazard, Jack Grealish, Goncalo Ramos and Gvardiol all cost around the same amount. What have they done that justified a £100 million price tag? For your info, Osimehn already signed for a new club and the Napoli president already said he is leaving in the summer.
