Boost for Arsenal as Antonio Conte confirms Osimhen agreement

Arsenal has been handed a boost as they consider signing Victor Osimhen this summer.

The Nigerian striker has been one of the best forwards in European football, and Napoli is preparing for his departure.

Napoli recently appointed Antonio Conte as their manager, and he has blocked the departure of several key players.

However, he could not do so for Osimhen because the striker’s situation is unique. Osimhen and Napoli have an agreement that he would leave the club this summer.

Conte has confirmed this pact between the striker and the club, making Osimhen available for a summer transfer at the right price.

He said, as quoted by Metro Sport:

“As far as Osimhen is concerned, just as I knew very well about the situation of Kvara, Di Lorenzo, Anguissa, Lobotka, on which I have placed an absolute veto.

“Having said that, I know what the situation is regarding Osimhen. I know that there are agreements, that it is a situation different from all the others. I can only assist.

“He is a player of the highest level, exceptional, but I cannot enter into any discussion because it is part of previous agreements which have been clearly stated to me.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Osimhen is one of the best strikers we can sign this summer, and the Nigerian will be a fantastic addition to our squad.

Conte’s words do not necessarily make it easy for us to sign him because he has a release clause, and we must pay it before we have our man.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Which one now of Osimhen and Gyokeres are Arsenal going to sign this summer?
    But if at all it is true that they are interested to sign one of the pair strikers. And want to sign one of them.
    But if I am to choose which one of them who I would like and want to see Arsenal sign this summer.
    I would rather want it if Arsenal sign both of them.
    But this will financially not be practicable even if Arsenal wants to do that. Because Arsenal will still have to take care of the other areas of their team squad.. Such as in defence, midfield and the wings to do top quality upgrade signings for the positions as well this summer.
    So, what should I do or what should Arsenal do? As regards to sign one of Osimhen and Gyokeres.
    Should I leave Arsenal to decide on which of them they will sign? I think I better do so.

  2. Preferably arsenal should go for gyokeres that will make a way in the other possision

  3. Osimen would be a very good upgrade to Arsenal’s front. He is one of the most hardworking strikers in the world. He helps out in defence. Very good aerially. Holds the ball well. Lethal even with his back to the opponents net. My fear is can we afford him, knowing there are other areas to address with incomings.

  4. Osimhen is the one that appears to tick all the boxes on paper, but many strikers with those same credentials have ultimately failed in the EPL when tyring to impress at a title-chasing club. For Osimhen I think it will be a case of whether Arteta thinks he can toughen him up enough to cope with rainy winter days getting roughed-up by big strong defenders. So basically can he replicate it in the EPL? I have my doubts, but on paper at least he does look good.

    1. Lol,
      If you there is a Striker that cannot be bullied by Defenders, that’s VICTOR OSIHMEN!!!
      He is the Striker’s version of William Saliba.
      Very good at Aggressive Duels.
      And in addition, he can score with both Feet and very good with Headers! 🙂

  5. The coach can give him chance just like he done with the two Brazilan forwards.
    He has less injuries but English football is not food.

  6. Though we are not interested in a striker, i don’t think Osimhen is the ideal man for our team, if at all we are interested in a striker!
