Former Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi has expressed hope
for Victor Osimhen to join the London-based club in the next transfer window.
The ex-Nigeria international backed the Napoli striker to
succeed in the Premier League.
He said Osimhen is the type of striker Premier League clubs
“I think he [Victor Osimhen] does slot seamlessly into the
Premier League. He got the tools to be a success in England,” Mikel said in the
latest episode of The Obi One podcast.
“When I look back at him a few years ago, I would say ‘no.’

“He would come into the Premier League and he would slot
right in. He would get you goals, he would run behind defenders, he would
stretch the team. And I think this is what probably when you look at a lot of
the teams now in Premier League, that’s what they’re looking for. A striker who
can run. Who wants to run behind the defenders because then it helps your team.
Doesn’t it? He stretches the defenders, the game becomes open and then you can
create chances. And I think that’s what Victor [Osimhen] would definitely give
“I hope you come to Chelsea. But from noises that I hear, he
is a big United. But I hope he comes to Chelsea really.”
