Victor Osimhen has already decided which team he would join between Chelsea and Tottenham

Victor Osimhen has reportedly decided which Premier League team he'd prefer to join.

Osimhen's become one of the most in-demand forwards in world football after helping Napoli to Serie A glory last season.

The Nigeria international is valued at around £150 million and has scored six goals in eight league games this term.

Speculation surrounding his long-term future continues to grow, with several teams interested in securing his signature.

Osimhen's contract runs until 2025 and he's made it no secret that he'd like to play in the Premier League one day. Among the clubs who've registered interest are Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Per Nizaar Kinsella of the Evening Standard, Osimhen wouldn't be against moving to United but the club currently don't have any interest in a striker.

The Red Devils signed Rasmus Hojlund in the summer and are willing to put their faith in the 20-year-old.

That leaves Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs as realistic moves. Kinsella believes Osimhen would join Chelsea and reject their two London rivals.

He explained during an appearance on the London Is Blue podcast per The Boot Room: "It’s a bad market for strikers in January, and Osimhen is the striker that everyone wants.

"There’s no point in getting another young one now.

"He’d be a great fit, and Chelsea like him. Osimhen likes Chelsea, I had the information for a little while.

"He’s always loved Chelsea, loved Drogba. They’ve got some similarities. He’d be interested in Manchester United, but they’re not going to sign a striker.

"It’s basically Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs competing in the battleground and Osimhen would probably pick Chelsea out of three."

Chelsea signed Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal in the summer and despite scoring six goals in the league, he's struggled with consistency.

Mauricio Pochettino also added Christopher Nkunku to his squad, although the France star has yet to play a competitive game due to injury. Armando Broja is the only other first-team striker at the club.

Signing Osimhen would be a big boost for Chelsea as they look to return to former glories.

It'd be a blow to Arsenal and Spurs, who are both interested in new forwards themselves.

Arsenal are looking to improve on Gabriel Jesus. Spurs, meanwhile, are yet to replace Harry Kane following his exit for Bayern Munich earlier this year.
