Chelsea are reportedly planning to make a move for both Victor Osimhen and his Lille teammate Gabriel Magalhães at the end of the season.

According to Le10Sport, the duo have emerged as Blues transfer targets this month.

Osimhen has been in superb form for Lille since joining the French Ligue 1 club from RSC Charleroi in July last year.

The 21-year-old has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances across all competitions this season. Osimhen’s rise has not gone unnoticed and clubs from across Europe’s top divisions are keeping a close eye on the Nigeria international.

Clubs in England, Italy and Spain are reportedly keen on signing the forward who recently admitted his desire to play in the English Premier League one day.

Chelsea have already completed the signing of Morocco international Hakim Ziyech from Ajax Amsterdam and are also said to be in the running for Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana’s signature.
