According to Football Italia via Daily Mail, Chelsea transfer target Victor Osimhen is heading to Napoli in a £74million deal.

The Lille striker was a summer target for the Blues among a host of other Premier League clubs including Arsenal, but it is Napoli that appear to have won the race to sign him.

Osimhen will complete his move to Napoli in the next 48 hours and is set to have his medical on Thursday.

The 21 year old Nigerian international had an impressive season with Lille, with the forward scoring 13 goals in 25 appearances as Lille finished the 2019-20 season in fourth place.
