Napoli and Victor Osimhen remain in talks over a possible contract extension, reports Fabrizio Romano.
However, a decision has not yet been made and discussions between the two parties are expected to continue until the end of autumn.
Romano reports Chelsea were monitoring Osimhen’s situation amid his clash with Napoli over a controversial social media post.
The Nigerian’s contract expires at the end of the 2024/25 season and the Serie A side could look to sell him next summer in order to avoid losing the player for nothing.
Therefore, the London Blues are alarmed and ready to break their personal transfer record.
Napoli would only accept over 150 million euros, so Chelsea must sell first to reach the amount.
