“Victor Moses as well, Celestine Babayaro. Not a lot of. He has looked at that, London as well, fantastic city instead of going to Liverpool or places like that, you want to live in London but he also has a lot of interest, PSG, Man United.”

He continued, “But I am still pushing, sending him messages, trying to make sure that he doesn’t expect too much, just narrow your mind in one club, the Blues.

Mikel added; “We need that striker who will score goals and that is what Victor will give you.

“He is not the most skillful guy but goals, definitely, he guarantees, if he could get us 20 goals per season, 25 who knows.

“That is what Erling Haaland does, that is why he is one of the best, he is not really there to follow the links up and all that. Get the ball in the box and he would finish.

“That is definitely what Victor Osimhen would give us, so let’s hope it works out, he comes to Chelsea and becomes a legend.”
