‘Complete striker’: Didier Drogba raves about £87m forward, after claims Chelsea could bid for him
Didier Drogba has heaped admiration on rumoured Chelsea target Victor Osimhen once more.
Drogba turned to Twitter to express his love for the Napoli star, who he has previously praised.
The Chelsea legend reacted to an old video of Osimhen unselfishly passing the ball to a teammate before of a penalty kick rather than taking it himself.
That’s a complete striker : unselfishness…the real meaning of “win as A TEAM “!!!! @victorosimhen9 #fuoriclasse 👌🏾 https://t.co/cSwVy8Uk5R

Forwards are paid a lot of money to score goals, but Napoli’s number nine shown his willingness to share the benefits with his teammates.
This is just one of the numerous reasons why a number of clubs throughout Europe, including reportedly Chelsea, want to sign Osimhen.
Chelsea reportedly eyeing up Osimhen
According to 90min, the Blues are considering signing the Nigerian international next summer, having been a hit with the club’s scouts.
Should Todd Boehly make a move for the in-form attacker, he will have to break open the piggy bank to do so.
Napoli reportedly want £87m (CalcioMercato) for their prized possession, a fee that only a handful of teams can realistically afford.
Thanks to the financial backing of Boehly, Chelsea have the funds to fork out for Osimhen if they are serious in their pursuit.
But do they actually need Napoli’s main threat?
Potter’s misfiring forwards
Graham Potter already has a plethora of offensive quality at his disposal, so cramming another superstar into the squad may result in more issues than benefits.
However, the current generation of forwards hasn’t exactly gotten off to a fast start this season.
Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz have four goals each, while the two recognised attackers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Armando Broja, have four each.
Chelsea have undoubtedly been looking for a guy to decisively lead their line since the days of Drogba.
Perhaps Osimhen is the Ivorian’s heir apparent.
