Arsenal given a boost as Italian club finds a replacement for striker

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their pursuit of Victor Osimhen, as it seems Napoli is preparing for life without the Nigerian.

Osimhen has been a key player for them in this campaign and helped in their initial challenge for the Serie A title.

He was also in good form in Europe, but he could leave them at the end of the season.

Napoli knows they will struggle in his absence and they have now identified a replacement for the former Lille man. claims they want to replace him with Armando Broja, who has been in fine form this season.

The striker plays at Southampton on loan from Chelsea and he has stood out for The Saints in this campaign.

The Italians believe he can become the ideal replacement for Osimhen when the Nigerian leaves.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Osimhen has been in great form since he moved to Italy and a move to Arsenal will make him even better.

Several other clubs want the Nigerian and qualifying for the Champions League could be very important to our chances of winning the race for his signature.

He would also not come cheap because Napoli signed him for a club-record fee.

    1. Great player. £70mil transfer, ok, but £500k per week? My friend, we can pay the salaries of 4 quality signings with that and strengthen the whole team.

      I’d rather have Darwin Nunez (currently £32k per week), Gabriel Jesus (currently on £70k per week), Gakpo (£7,4k per week, YES £7,4k per week) & Ruben Neves (£50k per week) who would all cost less than £500k per week even when signed on improved wages.

      We did not trim and balance the wage bill only to mess it up again on one player. We are trying to build a hybrid Dortmund-Liverpool model.

  1. A simple fact: the Reds have dominated the game lately without spending more than 60M on any one attacker. Seems like a good recipe to follow. Nothing against Osimhen, Haarland, Lukaku, Grealish and the other big-ticketed players, but I don’t think they are worth the risk. Besides, there’s no guarantee that the 90M-rated Osimhen will shine against premier league. defenders.

    1. Arsene Wenger was once quoted £90mil for Thomas Lemar by AS Monaco. Thank goodness deal fell through.

      1. I always smelt a rat in all those latter years dealings – Ozil, Laca, Xhaka, Auba, Mustafi – we paid over 30M then for average or slightly above average players having mentality issues. Plus others like Perez, Gabriel Paulista, Chambers, etc.
        All these costly signings have brought us down to our knees if not prostrating before the biggies in football when the times mattered the most.
        Arteta’s detractors will point out to Ramsdale, White, Odegard being costly signings too, but these lads have brought us within 3 points of a top three finish with 4 clubs fighting for the 4th spot, when during our “greatest” manager’s latter days, top 4 was a stroll in the park.

  2. I would rather go in for Nunez, this guy’s wages are too high. Secondly, if Gabriel Jesus is coming to Arsenal and Nketiah contract is extended, I dont see the need for any other striker with Balogun/Flores/Biereth being the back up strikers as we will have more fixtures considering Europe. We can use the additional money saved on midfield and full back positions.
