Arsenal is not put off by £86m asking price for Serie A striker

Victor Osimhen has been on Arsenal’s radar since he played for Lille in France, and Napoli beat them to his signature.

The Nigerian remains one of the finest young strikers in Europe, and he has been proving his class at Napoli since he moved to Serie A.

The Italians broke their transfer record to add him to their squad and would be more than happy to keep him.

However, Arsenal is insisting on adding the 23-year-old to their group, and they have placed a valuation on the former Wolfsburg teenager.

A report on The Sun reports says Napoli wants £86m for his signature. That fee should ideally scare anyone away.

But it maintains that Arsenal doesn’t seem unfazed, and they will happily break their transfer record to add him to their team.

Just Arsenal Opinion

When you see the players that the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City are buying, you can tell that we need to keep spending to win a title.

Osimhen has the goals in him to help us move up on the league table by the end of next season, and we must splash the cash to add him to our squad.

But Gabriel Jesus is another good striker, and we might struggle to sign both of them in the same transfer window.

  1. I presume that any Club who are prepared to pay £30m for a 22 year old attacking midfielder who didn’t even play regularly in the Portuguese League last year… or alternatively to consider buying a CF who struggled to score goals for one of the highest scoring teams in Europe….would believe that Osimhen could turn out to be a worthwhile purchase.
    Its not surprising that Napoli want something around £80m for him given that they paid over £60m in the first place…Arsenal might however want to consider that Napoli might be interested in Torreira…and possibly Mari…who’s fees might go some way towards “sweetening” the pot.

    1. I was wondering that also as they were also interested in Pepe before we bought him at the time. I’d offer Pepe 1st and foremost and see how much of that chunk can be taking down, add Mari too then they get both an attacker and defender with maybe some money too!!

      £25 for Pepe, £10 for Mari & put that on top of the £51m bid.

      Just a thought

  2. It was an enticing read until I saw “A report in the sun” which made me realise that is was all a load of total crap.
    Can you see Arsenal paying £86 million when they could get Jesus for £36 million less with a proven Premiership record.
    I correct myself…
    When you could get Jesus, Tieleman and save £9 million..

      1. Personally I wouldn’t be touching Jesus now. Been going on for over a month and he appears still to be dragging his heels. I would be looking elsewhere by now. But I don’t think he fixes the glaring issues we had up front last season either so I would looking somewhere else anyway.

  3. I just can’t work out why we are not looking at Toney, Yarmelenko or K Moore. Surely this is what Artetaball is set up for? Someone that is gonna bully CBs instead of the wingback bullying our forwards? A complete flat track big bar steward.

    Really makes no sense to me, but the whole concept of Artedu doesn’t either, So what the duck do I know?

    1. Toney I would buy for a backup/Plan B but only if Eddie was leaving as we would still need a Top Striker.

  4. I have not watched Nkunku on YouTube to see his quality and how good he is until I do so I save my comment

  5. If any Gooner at all, seriously belives our club willoffer £86 mill for this player, gven that we are definitely keen on Jesus and Tielemans and have signed Vieira, they should see a shrink , frankly.

    This story is laughable,it’s sheer fantasy and no serious mind will give it even a first, let alone a second thought! Forget it!!

  6. Keeping the door open on Osimhen, strenghtens our bargaining position for Jesus…and all other strikers in the market. Lukaku’s pay cut should also work in our favor. Jesus for 35M and Osimhen 70M would be ideal.

  7. Jesus is over rated, Eddie is much better than him. We should collect some nerve buy Lewandoski or CR7 or bring bench striker form PSG.
