Super Eagles and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen, is expected to pen a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea, according to TEAMtalk.
It is believed Osimhen has made up his mind to leave the Serie A champions this summer.
The 25-year-old, who now has a release clause of around £112m, will however not be moving this month.
However, Osimhen is willing to sign a pre-agreement in January, before making the switch to Chelsea at the end of the season.
The report claims former Chelsea players, Didier Drogba and John Obi Mikel have been in regular contact with Osimhen, hoping to persuade him to join the Blues.
Chelsea have been keen to add a top centre-forward to their ranks for the majority of this season and have Osimhen at the top of their list.
