Boost for Arsenal as Victor Osimhen’s summer priority is revealed

Arsenal is among several top European clubs hoping to sign Napoli’s Victor Osimhen in the summer as he is now available for transfer.

The Nigerian has been superb since returning from representing Nigeria at the AFCON, scoring two goals in two games for the Naples side.

Many clubs have been monitoring him since last season when he was the top scorer in Serie A and helped Napoli win their league.

However, his current employers were not ready to sell him, and Osimhen has forced their hands by including a release clause in his latest contract.

The Nigerian will be highly sought-after in the summer, and Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to win the race for his signature.

Mikel Arteta’s side faces competition from Chelsea to bring him to England, and both London clubs could be his main suitors.

This is because a report on Football Italia claims Osimhen wants to play in the Premier League next season, and his next club will likely be in the English top flight.

Osimhen would be a statement signing if we add him to our squad, but Ivan Toney is also a superb player to add to our group in that transfer window.

  1. According to all the reports out there Arsenal Chelsea and PSG are in the running to sign him. I have got a sneaky feeling that he might become an Arsenal player in the summer if the club are prepared to pay the £110M release clause as I don’t see why he would want return to the French League over a possible move to the Premier League at this stage of his career and it would be baffling if he chose to join Chelsea over us given the current state of their club regardless of whether he is an alleged Chelsea fan which does not really mean much when it comes to a player deciding what is best for their career.

  2. I don’t want him at the club.

    First of of all he will cost over 100 million. For a goal machine that’s acceptable, however he’s EXTREMELY prone to injuries.

    20/21 – 24 matches missed due injuries
    21/22 – 17 matches missed due injuries + AFCON
    22/23 – 11 matches missed due injuries
    23/24 – 7 matches missed due injury + AFCON

    These are the matches missed completely, add here the matches where he was on the bench not fit yet to start and we have another Partey on our hands…

    1. Thats why you have more than one attacker how much has G jesus been injured or how many goals does jesus give u ? Oshimen with that record still gets u close or over 20 goals. But i rather take tooney

    2. Add that to his top scorer last season in Italy and his impressive tally in Champions league.

      IF he joins and gives us an average 20 plus goals, hell YES we need that on top of our midfield goals

    3. According to these your stats, seems you’re the only one who didn’t notice that the number of matches missed through injuries have been on a constant decline? That means he’s playing more matches every season and you’re complaining. And you cunningly left out his impact when he has been on the pitch.

      And if AFCON was such a bad thing, Liverpool would have sold Salah long ago

  3. Santiago Gimenez or Millans Martinez , two strikers that are cheaper and will guarantee you 20 plus goals. They have been consistently over three years and unlike Osimhens they have already scored over 20 goals this season and are less injury prone and a lot cheaper.

  4. Give me his namesake Gyokeres please; potentially cheaper, younger, familiar to the English turf, and more suitable to the way Arsenal play.
    Can’t stop drooling over that guy!
