Victor Osimhen, who is reportedly a target for Chelsea, has received praise from Didier Drogba once more.
Drogba, who had previously praised the Napoli striker in glowing terms, used Twitter to express his support for the player.
The former Chelsea star responded to an old video showing Osimhen giving the ball to a teammate before a penalty kick rather than taking it himself.
Although Napoli‘s number nine demonstrated his willingness to share the goods with his teammates, forwards are paid much to score the goals. This is only one of the many factors that have led a few clubs in Europe to desire to hire Osimhen, Chelsea is one of them, according to reports.
Chelsea reportedly eyeing up Osimhen
The Nigerian international has impressed the club’s scouts, and 90min reports that the Blues are considering signing him next summer.
Todd Boehly will need to break open the piggy bank if he decides to go for the in-form attacker.
Only a select few teams can pay the £87 (CalcioMercato) million asking price Napoli is apparently seeking for their prized possession.
If Chelsea is sincere in their pursuit of Osimhen, they will have the income to spend on him thanks to Boehly’s financial support.
However, do they really need the main threat from Napoli?

Chelsea have undoubtedly been looking for a guy to decisively lead their line since the days of Drogba.
Perhaps the Ivorian’s replacement could actually be Osimhen.
