Chelsea are set to bring their pursuit of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen forward to the January transfer window, according to 90min.
Osimhen has been Chelsea’s top striker target for a while, but the Blues began exploring other targets last summer when it appeared as though the Nigeria international would sign a new contract in Naples.
Ivan Toney, Santiago Gimenez, and Lautaro Martinez were among those being tracked.
Nicolas Jackson has been spotted with his former Villarreal teammates over the weekend despite Mauricio Pochettino threatening to cancel Chelsea’s day off.
The Blues put on a poor display against Newcastle, resulting in a 4-1 loss at St. James’ Park. Pochettino suggested that a normal way to react to such a poor performance would be to cancel the scheduled Sunday off in order to do extra training.
However, this was not the case as Jackson was spotted back in Spain celebrating Villarreal’s win against Osasuna with his ex-teammates.
Pochettino refused to criticize his players for individual mistakes and instead slammed the lack of maturity and energy.
