Chelsea propose Lukaku plus cash deal for Osimhen transfer



Chelsea are exploring the possibility of offering Romelu Lukaku plus €90 million and a young player to Napoli in exchange for Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen, set to depart Napoli at the end of the season, has attracted interest from several clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal among the frontrunners.

However, reports from Sky Sport Italia suggest Chelsea, who are long time admirers of Osimhen, are willing to put up anything to get the Nigerian star down to Stamford Bridge.

The proposed deal includes Lukaku, a move aimed at reducing the overall cost for Chelsea.

Lukaku, who has expressed his desire to continue playing in Italy after loan spells at Inter Milan, and now Roma, is eager for a move away from Chelsea.

The Blues are also looking to leverage Lukaku’s preference for Italy to facilitate Osimhen’s transfer to England.

Although there are rumours linking the Belgian forward with Saudi clubs, Chelsea will likely reconsider their options if Napoli agrees to the deal for a swap.
