Sources: PSG ready jaw-dropping £133m Victor Osimhen bid to blow Chelsea away
Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a jaw-dropping offer for Victor Osimhen as they look to blow Chelsea out of the water, sources have told Football Insider.
A well-placed source has told Football Insider that the French club are ready to bid the extraordinary sum of €150million (£133million) for the 24-year-old this summer.
Football Insider revealed last month (26 March) that Chelsea are prepared to bid £100million for top priority transfer target Osimhen.
It is believed that the Blues are prepared to flex their financial muscle and enter a bidding war for the Nigeria international to give themselves the best chance of signing him.
Football Insider has also revealed (27 February) interest from Man United and Tottenham ahead of the summer window.
However, PSG are planning to go to even greater lengths to get a deal done for one of the hottest talents in world football.

Osimhen has notched 26 goals and five assists in 31 games for Napoli this season.
He has been a key part of Luciano Spaletti’s side as they push for their first Serie A win since 1990.
The 24-year-old forward, who earns a reported wage of around £93,000-a-week, has scored 54 goals in 93 games since joining Napoli in 2020.
His contract at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona will expire in June 2025.
Chelsea are keen to add a top-class forward in the off-season after struggling for goals in the 2022-23 campaign.
However, the Blues will be without Champions League football next term – and are likely to miss out on European qualification entirely.
Paris Saint-Germain are on course for another Ligue 1 title but are yet to achieve their ultimate goal of winning the Champions League – despite boasting a front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
Man United are well-placed to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition but have also been widely linked with a deal for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
