Ok, let's get into some Victor Osimhen news. Perhaps the only transfer speculation that has stretched longer than that involving the Napoli striker is the Kylian Mbappe move to Real Madrid.

There have been speculations surrounding the future of Osimhen, which was given plenty of life this season following the issues that cropped up between him and the Serie A club.

Osimhen is in Ivory Coast with Nigeria at AFCON 2023, where the Super Eagles have qualified for the next round.

There is more Osimhen news beyond his solitary goal at the tournament. Everything seems to revolve around where he would be playing next summer.

The Napoli striker seems to have made up his mind on his future.

Napoli fans will have their hearts in their mouth concerning Osimhen following his latest statements concerning his future.

Despite signing a new contract at Napoli and presently with Nigeria at AFCON 2023, talks about his next destination are still in the news.

Rumours continue to swirl around his future for about a year, causing concerns in Naples.

In a recent interview, the Napoli striker was categorical in his statement, leaving no room for ambiguity and perhaps putting an end to the endless questions about his Napoli future.

“I have already made my decision on the next step to do at the end of the season,” Osimhen said.

“I have already made up my mind. I already have a plan, I know what I want to do, the next step I want to take,” the striker concluded.

While keeping those plans close to his chest, the statement seems to have left the door open for a move away from Napoli.

It is one piece of Osimhen news that will excite several clubs in England, who have been monitoring his situation at Napoli.

Last season, the former Lille striker helped Napoli to its first Serie A title in 33 years, elevating him to demi-god status in Naples.

The last player to win the Scudetto for Napoli was the legendary Diego Maradona.

Things seemed to be going well, but a beautiful relationship between player and club hit rocky waters and tested the cords that bind them together, and things have not been the same again.

There have been insinuations that the Nigerian wants to leave the club, and if he does, he will not be short of takers, as several English clubs have been on his tail.

Chelsea leads the queue for clubs interested in signing the forward, but they will have competition from Manchester United and Arsenal.

Real Madrid were also interested in the forward, but the interest seems to have cooled off.

The latest Osimhen news will excite Chelsea fans, as they need a forward man who can bang in the goals. Osimhen has also hinted at a love for Chelsea and Manchester United.

He also said Didier Drogba is his hero, and there are reports of Mikel Obi convincing him to move to Stamford Bridge.

Perhaps it will be a Chelsea move in the summer.
