As the next transfer window draws near, Chelsea is making moves to sign Lille player, Victor Osimhen.
According to reports from 90 Min, the talented Nigerian striker and Ligue 1 player is being eyed by Chelsea alongside centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes.
The moves being made to sign both players are targeted at the upcoming transfer window.
Due to the spread of the covid-19, the pandemic will likely have a substantial impact on football finances and clubs’ ability to spend whenever the window does eventually open.
With Frank Lampard aiming to strengthen his defensive and attacking options in the summer, the new development does not appear to have affected Chelsea’s plans as they ar showing interest in the highly-rated Lille pair.
According to French news outlet Le10 Sport, the Blues have ‘made contact’ with Lille over the potential signings of Osimhen and Gabriel.
Following Eden Hazard’s switch to Stamford Bridge from Lille in 2012, the report states the two clubs already enjoy a good relationship.
