Chelsea and Super Eagles legend John Obi Mikel has attempted to persuade Victor Osimhen to join Chelsea next season.
Mikel informed Napoli striker Victor Osimhen on the latest episode of his podcast, The Obi One, that he is going to ‘broker that deal’ with his previous club to sign him.
The former Chelsea midfielder told Osimhen that he was ‘100% coming to Chelsea’ in an attempt to entice the striker to join the Premier League giants.
‘It’s not the time to go to Saudi,’ Mikel explained to Osimhen after the striker revealed he had received offers from the Middle East.
‘Next season I know you’re going to come to Chelsea. I’m going to be the agent to broker that deal. You’re 100% coming to Chelsea!’
‘You are 100% going to Chelsea next season because we are crying out for someone like you since the big man left, Didier Drogba, we haven’t had anybody with that figure and stature and can score goals in big games.
‘I feel like you are that person and fits in with what we want to achieve at that club.’
Mikel played for Chelsea for over a decade, making 372 appearances and winning the Champions League as well as four Premier League titles.
