Chelsea among clubs ‘queuing up to sign Lille striker Victor Osimhen’

There is no football being played right now, but as ever the transfer rumour mill continues to spin.

Chelsea have been linked with bringing in a number of quality attacking players this summer as Frank Lampard looks for reinforcements in a problematic area that he has publicly picked up on a number of times over the course of the season.

Lampard believes his front line have lacked firepower and finesse and has already added to the creative part of the team by completing the deal to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax this summer.

He is now being linked with making a move to sign Lille forward Victor Osimhen, as per The Daily Express.

The paper claims that Chelsea join a host of top European clubs in the queue to sign the 21-year old Nigerian international.

They also cite a report from Sky Sports that claims that two Premier League sides have already tabled bids for Osimhen, who is believed to be valued between £70m and £90m.
