Gallas predicts Victor Osimhen will join Chelsea this summer

Former Arsenal defender William Gallas says that Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen could join Premier League side Chelsea in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Speaking in a chat with Genting Casino, Gallas expressed his belief that Osimhen would be a formidable force in the Premier League and drew comparisons between the Nigerian international and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

“I think they [Chelsea] will sign Victor Osimhen in the summer. I don’t know Victor that well as a person but he’s similar to Drogba,” Gallas remarked. “Didier was so strong but with Osimhen, he is also very quick.”

Gallas continued by stating his confidence that Osimhen’s style of play would suit the Premier League well, asserting, “I am sure he will do a lot of damage in the Premier League.”

Osimhen, who has garnered interest from clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, and Paris Saint-Germain, has been in impressive form and could be set for a move to the English top flight.

Just recently, Osimhen helped Nigeria win second place at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.
