Chelsea handed BLOW ahead of January

Share this article:

The January window is heating up and with Chelsea in the market for a striker, tonight’s latest develops have perhaps come at a massive blow for the blues.

Just days ago Pochettino hinted at the possibility of new bodies arriving through the door at Stamford Bridge next month, one is likely to be a striker but has the latest development thrown a spanner in the works?

It’s no surprise that Victor Osimhen has been on the clubs radar if you are to believe recent reports but is that about to change?

According to DiMarzio, Osimhen has held a meeting with Napoli’s representatives about increasing his contract to 2026 with a ‘major increase in salary.’ DiMarizo goes onto say a possible contract extension would include a release clause between €130-140m.

We know Clearlake/Boehly aren’t put off by massive release clauses but is this one step too far especially with the rules of amortisation covering a maximum of 5 years.
