Emmanuel Petit warns Chelsea to stay off Victor Osimhen



By Monsurah Olatunji

Former Chelsea star Emmanuel Petit has cautioned the club against pursuing Victor Osimhen and Victor Gyokeres this summer.
He believes that the club already possesses sufficient talent but lacks the cohesion and confidence required for optimal performance.
According to him getting a new striker or Osimhen will be a waste of money as all that is needed is to focus on improving their current squad members rather than making unnecessary signings.
The French defensive midfielder played for Chelsea between 2001 and 2004 and made 55 appearances across all competitions.
In a recent statement to Genting Casino, the former Arsenal and Monaco star expressed his reservations about Chelsea’s rumoured interest in Victor Osimhen and Victor Gyokeres.
“I don’t think Chelsea need Gyokeres or Osimhen. With Chelsea, there are so many players who are not playing to their level and can do so much more.”
“I think Nicolas Jackson is one of them. He’s got lots of potential and has shown it in glimpses but needs to do more. I think Caicedo needs to too and so does the Argentine midfielder, Enzo (Fernandez).
“There are many players who don’t play the way they should, there’s no confidence, they’re lost on the pitch – and it’s the same with Jackson. He’s struggling as the team is struggling.
“He’s not the type to dribble past four or five defenders and score, he’s not like that, but when Chelsea improves as a team, he will improve.
“That’s why I don’t think Chelsea need to sign a striker – they need to stop spending so much.”
