Napoli’s Osimhen-Lukaku swap deal with Chelsea falls through


Negotiations between Napoli and Chelsea over a potential Victor Osimhen-Romelu Lukaku swap deal have hit a stumbling block. While Napoli are  looking to revamp their squad and finalize details with Antonio Conte’s legal team, the proposed swap deal involving Osimhen and Lukaku has not taken off.

Sky Sport Italia report that despite Chelsea’s interest, the deal to exchange Osimhen for Lukaku has not materialized. This leaves the future of the Nigerian striker up in the air, with Arsenal, showing potential interest in signing him this summer.

Napoli have had a tough 2023-24 campaign, having gone through three different managers in one season after Luciano Spalletti’s departure last summer. Rudi Garcia, Walter Mazzarri, and finally Calzona each took turns at the helm, but the Partenopei failed to qualify for European football.

Napoli must now determine the next steps for Osimhen and explore other potential transfer opportunities to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
