According to Calciomercato, Chelsea are ready to offer Christian Pulisic plus cash to Napoli for the services of their top striker. 

Although Napoli will only sell Osimhen for a ridiculous offer, the Blues believe they can convince the Neapolitans to sell with their Pulisic plus cash offer.

Pulisic joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in 2019, but he has failed to justify the fee the club paid for him. 

The Blues are now ready to cut their losses by offering him to Napoli for Osimhen. It remains to be seen, however, if Napoli will be willing to accept the offer. 

The Neapolitans view Osimhen as their most-prized asset and have always maintained that he is not for sale. 

Osimhen still has two years left on his contract, having joined Napoli from Lille in 2020 for a club-record fee of €75.00m.
