Chelssa are among a host of European heavyweights queuing up to sign Lille striker Victor Osimhen, according to reports.
The Blues are searching for attacking reinforcements to shoulder the goalscoring burden alongside Tammy Abraham and are interested in signing the Nigerian frontman this summer.
However, numerous other high-profile rivals including Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham are also said to be monitoring the 21-year-old.
French publication Le Quotidien du Foot claim Osimhen is attracting interest from Real Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Napoli, Roma, Lazio and AC Milan as well as the English quintet.
And Sky Sports have now reported that two Premier League clubs and a La Liga outfit have all tabled bids for the attacker, who is valued between £70m and £90m by Lille.
The Ligue 1 side bought Osimhen from Charleroi last summer for just £10m plus a further £2.5m in add-ons.
And their investment has been richly rewarded with 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.
Lille are now expected to cash in for a huge profit just a year later, although it remains to be seen who will win the race for Osimhen.
Chelsea had previously identified Lyon frontman Moussa Dembele as their priority attacking target this summer, although the Frenchman will not come cheap.
The 23-year-old is under contract until 2023 and has 22 goals in 42 appearances this season, dramatically inflating his valuation.
