And according to a report by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Mauricio Pochettino will hunt for a forward when the summer transfer window opens with Osimhen one of his targets.

Recall, Feyenoord Rotterdam forward Santiago Gimenez and Sporting CP forward Victor Gyokeres have been linked with the two-time UEFA Champions League winners.

Petit, argued that Osimhen shouldn’t be in Chelsea’s current plans. The 1998 world cup winner, highlighted that the former English Premier League champions has more than enough players to turn their fortunes around.

What Petit said about Chelsea bringing in Victor Osimhen

“I don’t think Chelsea need Gyokeres or Osimhen. With Chelsea, there are so many players who are not playing to their level and can do so much more. I think Nicolas Jackson is one of them. He’s got lots of potential and has shown it in glimpses but he needs to do more. I think Caicedo needs to too and so does the Argentine midfielder, Enzo,” Petit told Genting Casino.

Osimhen criticised over lack of goal-scoring form
Osimhen started his football career on the streets of Lagos; and currently plays in Italy.

Recall, Chelsea signed midfielders Caicedo and Enzo for a combined fee of £222m. But the players so far, have not proved to be worth the price tag as Chelsea are still in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Speaking about the shortcomings of current Chelsea players, Petit cited lack of confidence.

“Many players don’t play the way they should, there’s no confidence, they’re lost on the pitch, and it’s the same with Jackson. He’s struggling as the team is struggling. He’s not the type to dribble past four or five defenders and score, he’s not like that, but when Chelsea improves as a team, he will improve. That’s why I don’t think Chelsea needs to sign a striker, they need to stop spending so much,” the former French defender added.
