How Victor Osimhen could secure Arsenal a transfer windfall in merry-go-round

Victor Osimhen, recognised as one of the world’s finest strikers, has garnered significant attention from top European clubs this summer. His impressive goal-scoring contributions played a crucial role in Napoli clinching the Italian league title last season, further increasing his desirability among larger clubs.

While Arsenal was initially linked with a potential move for Osimhen, it appears they have shifted their focus to other targets. However, the Nigerian striker still holds the potential to generate substantial funds for the Gunners if he were to be sold during the summer transfer window.

Mirror Football reports that several elite clubs have set their sights on Osimhen, and Napoli would be willing to part ways with him for the appropriate price. In the event of his departure, the Serie A champions are rumoured to be interested in Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun.

Having monitored Balogun’s loan spell at Reims this season, Napoli believes the American international has the potential to fill the void left by Osimhen and is prepared to offer £30 million for his services.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Selling Balogun for £30 million would be one of the best pieces of business we could make in this transfer window.

He does not seem to have a future with us at the moment and we do not need to waste time before offloading him if we get an offer as big as that.

Now the season is over, it’s time for the summer Arsenal quiz from our friends at Dublin Arsenal – It’s always a laugh and helps while away the time while we wait for Arsenal’s first signings to come in!

  1. I think Balogun will become a great player and I would take him over nketiah any day of the week.
    Hopefully we can fund our main transfer targets from other sales and keep him for at least one year.
    Look how strong and capable Saliba came back from the French league.

    1. Sell Nketiah for 30mil in EPL, get Balogun in and do not buy any starter forward players. Concentrate on midfield this season, and young experimental players that can be loaned after Tevares/AMN/Lokonga can be sold

    2. Balogun is a very lethal striker. Arsenal should sell Nketia and preserve Balogun. He has the physical attributes similar to Wellbeck and an electrifying speed and acceleration…he is also good in the air and in one vs One circumstances.

  2. Arsenal currently do not have a striker scoring 20 goals and you want to sell a player who scored more than 20 goals for 30 million? does that make sense to you?

    1. I agree, it would be terrible business.
      21 goals in French League, then sell for 30 million is very bad business. Look at David in same league, his price is far above 30 million.

      Arsenal are terrible at selling players. It is understand that they are worth what someone else is willing to pay, most of us get that.

      However, if only 30 million is offered, then DON’T sell. Club is not pressured to sell, and Balogun is a better goal scorer than Nketiah; who struggled to even start in Championship when he was on loan.

      Balogun wants to start, but can’t sell him at the expense of the club getting mugged. Give him opportunities and perhaps in January he can move on for a better price. 30 million is absolute mugging.

  3. Pepe scored more than 20 goals in a season in France before moving to AFC but couldn’t do it in the Premier League, although I do agree that I would like to see Balogun given a chance over Nketiah.

  4. Arsenal pay 100M+ for Osimhen
    Napoli pay 30m for balogun
    After 3-5 years: Napoli sell balogun for 100m+

    1. Instead of paying 100m for Osimhen, who scored 22 goals in Serie A last season, we could probably get Ivan Toney, who scored 20 EPL goals last season, for around 30m, because of his ban.

      Just a thought

  5. If Balogun is not an arsenal player, Arteta will be willing to pay in excess of 45-50 million pounds for his services.

    We don’t want him because he was able to score more than our two strikers combined.

  6. Why are we even having this conversation, Nketiah should be the player to be sold, balogun should be sent on loan again,
    If we decide to sell Balogun, it shouldn’t be less than £40m,

    I wish we could buy Kane 😕
    Just my thoughts.

  7. Scoring 20+ goals in Ligue 1 really ain’t all that. Lacazette scored 27 in 35 games aged 32 but when he played for us he wouldn’t have scored in a Bangkok bang bar with 500 baht and a gram of nose whiskey.
