Chelsea may be rethinking their bid to sign Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen due to his high cost, and instead are looking towards Tammy Abraham of Roma as a more economical option.
Since Todd Boehly took control of Chelsea in 2020, the team has splurged over €500million on new signings but have not seen much success with Graham Potter as manager.
In terms of attack, the Blues have been struggling with only four goals scored throughout 11 games this year, yet it is not for lack of creating scoring chances.
Chelsea are keen on recruiting a new attacker during the summer and have been linked with Osimhen who is highly sought-after by many top clubs; though Napoli would only let him go for over €100million which Chelsea deems too steep a price.
An alternative route may be signing former Blues player Abraham from Roma at a fee of €70.5million.
While it sounds like a great idea in theory, Abraham has had an underwhelming season having scored merely six goals in 24 appearances in Serie A compared to Osimhen’s grand output previously.
