Chelsea are making headlines once again with their relentless pursuit of talent.

This time, it's the promising 24-year-old Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, who has caught the eye of the Blues.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is reportedly preparing an “astronomical bid” to secure Osimhen's services, further solidifying the club's reputation as one of the biggest spenders in European football.

Chelsea's ambition knows no bounds, and their heavy spending is set to continue in January as they set their sights on Victor Osimhen.

In recent years, the club has spared no expense in their quest for glory, investing an astonishing £1 billion over the last three transfer windows.

With Boehly at the helm, the Blues are showing no signs of slowing down.

To finance their latest pursuit, Chelsea is reportedly seeking a staggering £500 million loan from US financial institutions.

This massive injection of capital underscores the club's determination to keep up with their Premier League rivals.

Victor's potential move to Chelsea is generating immense excitement among the club's supporters.

The Nigerian international, who has been in scintillating form, is reportedly seeking an exit from Napoli.

The relationship between the 24-year-old and the Italian club appears to have soured irreparably following an offensive post on Napoli's TikTok account.

Napoli's subsequent apology did little to mend the damaged relations, leaving the door open for Chelsea to make their move.

In addition to their pursuit of Victor Osimhen, Chelsea is also making plans for the summer transfer window.

The Mirror reports that the Blues are optimistic about securing a credible fee for their star striker, Romelu Lukaku, in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Lukaku's potential sale could provide the financial resources needed to fund the acquisition of Osimhen, among other targets.

This strategic approach showcases Chelsea's ability to navigate the complex transfer market with precision.
