Victor Osimhen has been heavily linked with Chelsea over the past few months, however his €130 million release clause is deemed far too expensive for the club.

Napoli does not want to go below 100 million euros, an amount still considered too high by Chelsea. However, Chelsea is considering including players in the deal to reduce costs. One such player is Romelu Lukaku. There is a 10 million euro valuation difference between Napoli and Chelsea for the Belgian striker, but this gap might close over time.

Victor Osimhen is eager to start a new adventure. There is a gentlemen's agreement with Napoli's president De Laurentiis that they will part ways in the summer. However, no club is willing to pay the release clause, and Napoli will need to lower their demands to monetize.

Chelsea continues to show interest in Victor Osimhen through intermediaries.

Victor Osimhen has been told that he has become a problem for Napoli amid his ongoing summer transfer uncertainty. Napoli have been insistent that Osimhen’s €130 million release clause be matched if he is to be sold. Chelsea have shown interest but have so far been put off making a bid due to the high price. Napoli appear now to be willing to drop their price to around €100m.

Chelsea are set to drop out of the running for Osimhen. Napoli hope to complete the sale of Victor Osimhen as soon as possible. The market around the Nigeria striker is blocked, with the interested clubs having no intention of paying the amount in the termination clause. Consequently, the possible transfer of Osimhen to the Blues and the hypothetical exchange with Romelu Lukaku has faded. The high figure set by Napoli as Osimhen's termination clause makes the move impossible for Chelsea. Furthermore, the Blues have no intention of including Lukaku in an exchange with the Nigerian, but would prefer to sell him permanently in an unrelated deal. The transfer has therefore practically fallen through, with Napoli having to look elsewhere for new buyers for Osimhen.
