Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged Chelsea to make a move to sign Victor Osimhen this summer. Osimhen has established himself as one of the top strikers in the game and is expected to make a significant move in the transfer window. After helping Napoli win the league title and finishing as the top scorer, Osimhen is now reportedly valued at around £170 million by the Italian club.
Agbonlahor believes that Chelsea still need a proper striker despite already signing Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson this summer. He suggested that a player like Romelu Lukaku, who performed well during his time at Everton, would be ideal. Agbonlahor acknowledged that Osimhen would be a good option but felt that the reported price tag of £170 million is too high.
With teams like Aston Villa and Brighton improving, Agbonlahor emphasized the importance for Chelsea to strengthen their squad to compete for a top-four finish. He highlighted that given the amount of money Chelsea has spent, achieving a top-four position should be the minimum expectation for the club.
