Chelsea dump Victor Osimhen deal as Premier League star becomes number one target

 Reports have claimed that Chelsea’s focus in the summer transfer window has shifted to one current Premier League player.

The Blues are expected to be relatively busy again this summer as they look to give adequate backing to yet another new head coach.

This time it is Enzo Maresca who is ready to take the reins ahead of next season, and the length of contract he has been given suggests there is confidence in him to take this project into the future.

The attack is an area where reports have claimed that the Blues are most looking to strengthen ahead of next season, and the Italian’s Leicester City side were known for building around strong wingers.

For this reason they may be looking to invest there, and reports have claimed they are interested in a move for Michael Olise.

Chelsea make Michael Olise number one transfer target

The Frenchman enjoyed a superb campaign for a reenergised Crystal Palace side last season, even though injuries threatened to have an impact on his output.

Now, according to GiveMeSport, the Blues have made Olise their top target to bring in during the current window.

It has previously been reported that the release clause in the winger’s contract sits at around £60m at this stage.

Chelsea no longer want Victor Osimhen

It was previously believed that the club were looking to move for a new striker as a priority, with Victor Osimhen being frequently mentioned as the top dog.

However, it has emerged that the club are no longer interested in a move for him after taking into account the financial situation surrounding a deal.

Despite the fact that the Blues do have options in the wide areas in the form of Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk, it feels as if Olise is certainly a step up from both of them at this stage as far as his output goes.

With the system likely to be in place next season at Stamford Bridge, there could be a real opportunity to take further steps in development too.
