Craig Burley believes Napoli’s Osimhen and RB Leipzig’s Nkunku will cause fear in many Premier League defences.
The 25-year-old Nkunku is said to be on his way to West London next summer and is just waiting for official confirmation from the club. Chelsea still want to strengthen the attack and are said to be targeting Napoli striker Osimhen. 90min reported last month that Osimhen tops Graham Potter’s wish list for number 9.
Burley told ESPN that he likes the idea of an Osimhen-Nkunku partnership at Stamford Bridge next season: “I think he (Nkunku) and Osimhen will scare everyone… can you imagine.”
“I don’t know if he will leave Napoli, but you won’t get him until the summer at the earliest.”
The forward line has remained the weak point of the Blues for many seasons despite the fact that they have spent a lot of money on this position. Chelsea is currently ranked 8th in the Premier League.
