The summer transfer window has closed throughout Europe, but there are still moves in the works and plenty of gossip swirling around. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!
Chelsea have identified Napoli striker Victor Osimhen as their priority option amid the search for a striker to solve their goal-scoring woes, according to Calciomercato.
Mauricio Pochettino's side want to land a No. 9 and are exploring a number of options across Europe, but it is reported that the 24-year-old Nigeria international would be a "dream" signing.
The Premier League side signed Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal in the summer but, with the 22-year-old having scored just two goals in nine games,
it looks as though Chelsea are prioritising attacking reinforcements when the January window opens.
Osimhen's contract at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium is set to expire in the summer of 2025 and recent reports indicated that little progress had been made over an extension.
That could play into Chelsea's hands if they make a move for him, while they are also looking to offload Romelu Lukaku -- currently on loan at AS Roma -- on a permanent basis.
The Blues are hoping any transfer fee received from such a deal will then be able to go towards meeting Osimhen's transfer fee of around €120m.
The Napoli frontman has maintained his form in Serie A this season, where he has scored six goals in eight league appearances.
