According to transfer insider Rudy Galetti, the West Londoners are willing to meet the striker's whopping €130million (£111m) asking price.

In fact, Chelsea wish to "speed things up" in order to beat off interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG are rigorously looking for someone to replace Kylian Mbappe up front ahead of the France international's imminent departure in June.

The Premier League giants will soon meet up with Napoli officials to discuss a payment structure.

Pochettino's side remain "relaxed" even after Osimhen signed a new lucrative contract with the Partenopei.

The Nigeria international put pen to paper on a new deal tying him up to the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium until 2026.

Despite a rocky start this season due to a hamstring injury, the centre-forward is still shining bright in Naples.

Osimhen has registered a total of eight goals and three assists in 18 appearances throughout this campaign.

The ex-Lille star led Napoli to their first Serie A title after 33 years last term.

The Nigerian star has amassed a total of 67 goals and 17 assists in 119 appearances since joining Napoli in 2020.

Pochettino is desperate to add firing power to his frontline in the summer.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has already splashed over £1billion in transfers alone since taking over in the summer of 2022 but is set to push for a striker at the end of the season.
