Chelsea: Osimhen is Better Than Lukaku- Napoli President, Attacker to Leave in January, and More

Ross Barkley

According to reports, Chelsea have embarked on the transfer plans for Ross Barkley who has been linked with a move to Burnley in January. Sources say that he will join the club on loan for the second half of the season, with the potential of settling in the club permanently after his loan spell being in the cards. Burnley are also setting in motion plans to make the deal happen as soon as possible and it is expected that a formal agreement will be reached before Christmas.

Barkley has been struggling to get playing minutes under Tuchel and this move has been touted to be a step forward for him with regards to maintaining his reputation as a lethal attacker. Burnley are in dire need of a clinical and creative forward with their performance in the frontline being a major cause of concern to many fans.

Jules Kounde

Reliable sources have confirmed that Chelsea’s bid for Kounde had been received, but apparently, it was below the club’s asking price. Furthermore, Chelsea were not fully committed to signing the defender because Sevilla had counter-offered what Chelsea had put on the table. Sevilla’s President Muncho said that everything was set for Kounde’s anticipated departure but mishaps in the final details of the deal derailed the negotiations in the latter stages of the transfer window.

“ I can confirm that we had received a last-minute bid from Chelsea for Kounde and it was overwhelming with regards to the club’s transfer history. However, it did not meet our asking price even though we were a bit lenient in the negotiations.”

Romelu Lukaku

Napoli’s CEO Di Canio has publicly defended Victor Osimhen who was a victim of fierce criticism from the fans due to his long stretching goal drought. Di Canio said that he had heard rumors which were comparing Lukaku to Osimhen and from his take, the critics were too unfair on Osimhen if his recent performances are anything to go by. He said that Osimhen is much confident and high-spirited than Lukaku and that should give him a better hand over Lukaku.
