Napoli's chances of keeping Victor Osimhen, at least till the end of the season, are getting brighter.
While the rumours have continued to rage over an impending departure for the injured Nigerian striker, Napoli fans still hope that Osimhen will remain at the club beyond next season.
It continues to be a yoyo affair as the Partenopei have been seesawing between renewed hope and a hopeless situation in the transfer saga that continues to make the headlines.
A renowned transfer expert has given Napoli fans reason to cheer with his recent analysis and report of the situation involving Napoli, Osimhen and his suitors.
Transfer expert expects Chelsea to play Victor Osimhen transfer smart
When Fabrizio Romano speaks, he rarely misses, and the transfer expert has spoken concerning the transfer of Osimhen to Chelsea.
If his antecedents are anything to go by, Napoli fans can sleep easy knowing that their top scorer will be at the club beyond January 2024.
Romano believes Chelsea is interested in bringing Osimhen to Stamford Bridge but would not act rashly in the January transfer window.
They may need to bolster their attack line, with the Napoli striker vital to any business they intend to do in January or in the summer.
So what does Chelsea intend to do if they don't go for Osimhen in the January transfer window?

Romano predicts Chelsea will go for another striker
According to Romano, there has been plenty of personnel change at Stamford Bridge, and it could work against the club making a move for the Super Eagles striker in January.
Romano believes Chelsea would still be active in the market but with a different target.
Brentford's Ivan Toney has not been active for the Bees this season and could be a solid target for the Blues.
He believes that Chelsea will be smart in the market in January.
“I expect Chelsea to be smart – at the moment there is no news, after years of many stories about owners, directors, managers, and players. This is the best way,” Romano said.
So, the Osimhen transfer saga continues.
