Chelsea scouts noticed Napoli forward Victor Osimhen during their 1-0 victory over AS Roma on Sunday evening at the Stadio Olimpico.

Ten minutes from the end, Osimhen scored the winning goal for the Partenopei.

The 23-year-old outran Chris Smalling, an England defender, and scored from an unbelievable angle.

The Blues representative were pleased with Osimhen’s performance, according to the Italian website calciomercato.com.

Chelsea will struggle to pry the Nigerian away from Napoli, though.

Aurelio De Laurentiis, the president of Napoli, will demand almost €100 million for the 23-year-old.

This summer, Manchester United and Newcastle United were rumored to be interested in signing Osimhen.
