Werner or Osimhen: Who should be Chelsea prime transfer target

Chelsea are reportedly close to sealing their move for Germany international striker Timo Werner who plies his trade with RB Leipzig.

Despite the report which emanated from Stamford Bridge last week, some media outlets still believe Chelsea boss frank Lampard is very keen on capturing the services of Lille centre-forward Victor Osimhen.

The two reports have obviously forced the blues into asking a very important question –Who should be Lampard’s prime target in the next summer transfer window between the two deadly and lively strikers?

Both players are relatively young and they are presently in their prime as they doing well for their respective sides.

Osimhen joined Ligue 1 side Lille before the start of this season as replacement for Nicholas pepe who left for the Emirates Stadium last year

The young Nigerian scored 18 goals in all completion before all football activities were halted due to covid-19 pandemic.

The fact that osimhen has featured for three clubs in three different countries means he stand a better chance of getting used to premier League’s norms in no time unlike Werner who has been in germany throughout.

As for Werner, the German has found the back of the net 31 occasions in all competitions season, and it’s no surprise that the Blues are keen on his services.

Just as Osimhen, Timo Werner has got pace, shooting accuracy and power which all make him a perfect fit for the Premier League giant.

However, the German international is more experienced than the Nigerian star, having featured in more than 218 first-team matches in his career.

Our conclusions

Its no doubt that both players have what it takes to succeed with the west London club. However, Werner appears a perfect match for the blues who will need a more mature striker at the final third of the pitch.

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount are relatively inexperienced, it wont be too great to add inexperienced osimhen to the team.
