Victor Osimhen allegedly left Chelsea scouts ‘unimpressed’ after Napoli’s lose to Monza

An Italian publication has alleged that Chelsea scouts who were present during Napoli’s match against Monza on Sunday, May 14, were left “unimpressed” with Nigerian superstar, Victor Osimhen’s performance.

The newly crowned Serie A champions were defeated 2-0 by Monza during the match.

While it was alleged that Osimhen performed underwhelmingly during the match, he has been a revelation for Napoli this season and handed them their first Serie A title in 33 years with his goal against Udinese. He is wanted by some top clubs in Europe.

In a report shared on Monday, May 15, Il Mattino reported that Chelsea might take a step back from the race to sign the Nigerian forward in the summer.

Mauricio Pochettino is set to take over this week as the new Chelsea manager and it’s highly unlikely he will have any reservations about the club moving for Osimhen when the window opens despite the scouts’ decision.

Manchester United are deemed to be the frontrunners to land the player. It’s been reported earlier that the Red Devils were in touch with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis over a possible Osimhen transfer, but a deal did not materialize. Any other move they make will be reliant on whether the club’s takeover is completed in time.

Asides from Chelsea and Manchester United, Newcastle, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid are also keen on signing the Nigerian superstar.
