Chelsea and Real Madrid Keeping Tabs on Antsy Osimhen

Napoli will be in a precarious position if they can’t agree to a new contract with Victor Osimhen sooner rather than later, as a number of teams are closely monitoring the situation, especially Chelsea and Real Madrid, which will likely make a splash in the role.

According to reports from Fichajes (via OneFootball), the Pensioners plot to bring in a world-class striker come next summer. The Azzurri star is atop their wish list. He’s followed by Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez, Brighton’s prodigy Evan Ferguson, and Brentford’s marksman Ivan Toney.

On top of Chelsea, Real Madrid are also keen on Osimhen, but their main focus continues to be Kylian Mbappé, Tuttomercatoweb informs. Their management watched the center-forward closely in the most recent game. They will do the same in the return leg in Spain.

However, Los Galacticos plan to pursue the French start first. That’s where they will focus their efforts at first. The Partenopei ace figures to be one of their main alternatives. The destination would be hard to turn down for him. The two could easily pair up. Though, the double investment would probably be too much even for Los Blancos.

Despite the recent optimistic comments by Aurelio De Laurentiis, there has been no concrete progress on the renewal, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs (via Virgilio). The impasse fuels the hopes of Chelsea, Real Madrid, and all the other teams that could potentially afford Osimhen in 2024.
