Liverpool prepares to challenge Arsenal for Nigerian star

Liverpool has entered the race for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, setting up a challenge with Arsenal for his signature.

Osimhen, who is considered one of the hottest goal scorers in the world, claimed the Italian Golden Boot and the league title last season.

This impressive form has made him a target for numerous clubs globally, though he remained with Napoli in the last transfer window.

Arsenal has expressed a long-standing interest in Osimhen, as they are keen to bolster their attacking options. However, with more clubs showing interest, securing his services may become a more challenging endeavour.

According to The Sun, Liverpool is the latest club to express interest in the Nigerian striker. They reportedly sent scouts to watch him play for Nigeria during the international break, and they intend to continue monitoring him. Liverpool might consider making an offer for Osimhen at the end of the current season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Osimhen is a top striker and is more lethal than the players we have in his position in our squad now.

However, he will not come cheap and we must act fast to win the race for his signature ahead of other suitors.

  1. Don’t think we are interested in him, except maybe Mikel is looking to change the system to suit a CF of his type. i hope Liverpool don’t get him though cos they already got Nunez whom i think is gradually coming to life at Anfield already despite limited playing time.

  2. Signing Osimhen is almost impossible, Napoli will drain every penny from any club that tries to sign him, Madrid might just be his only destination,
    I think Arsenal really missed out on Isak and Bruno Guimeraes, we wouldn’t be looking out for a striker anymore.

  3. Definitely five phase, the final phase material, but this one not going to happen, would take a huge war chest to make this possible smashing our transfer record in the process.

  4. Osimhein is definitely a fantastic player. And as this hype about his potential picks up either towards January or the summer, I wish Arsenal completely out of anything to do with him. He won’t make any business sense and may therefore will not really be worth it all. Some suitable for reasonable budgets and a playing style perfect for Arsenal will come through soon.

  5. Only in a swap deal with jesus. If victor has less than two years remainingon his contract and he refuses to sign an extentention then his price will be apx £100 million to £120 million depending on addons. Jesus, who Napoli are interested in, would sell for £70 to £80 million, as Arsenal do not wish to sell the versitile Brazilian striker. So if we took the top ends of both values (£120m minus ££80 m) it would cost Arsenal apx £40 m plus jesus, given that their are no suiters willing to pay over £120 m for a player with less than two years on his contract. But i cant see Arsenal parting with one of their most versitle star players.

  6. We will also consider the other Victor that is playing at Beryarn Liverkusen he is a better option if we can’t get Osimihen if not better with his height and it’s very athletic if the likes of Liverpool will come to spoil the chance I will like us to go for the Bayern Liverkusen victor he is setting the Bundisliga on fire he is huge fast and lethal but when will Arsenal discover a better striker from the third tier league they were there Liverkusen discovered him because Arteta believe in finished products unlike Arsene Wenger please let him send his men out there to spot good players after all Martinelli did not course us millions of pounds like the amount they bought so many players now yet it is hard to see how many of them to dislodge not to talk of Bukayo Saka instead of to harness the potential of Emily Smith Rowe he is looking to offload him lazy coach Arsene Wenger won trophies he doesn’t buy them how many coaches can boast bringing up coming players than Wenger if there is any it can’t be more than Sir Alex Ferguson

    1. Absolutely 💯 spot on.. Victor Boniface would represent better value all around without having to sacrifice Jesus.. He’s a beast of a striker. It would make sense if Nketiah is let go and Boniface brought it .

      On the team as a whole, if a capable rotation option for Saka and replacement for Partey are secured, Arsenal would be a mighty force !!!!!!

  7. Liv has enough forwards they are well covered I don’t see them bringing in another one. Personally, I think Victor O is overrated so overpriced he is not good at hold-up play and his passing is pretty poor, he reminds me a little of Abraham does well in Italy but hasn’t proved he can do it elsewhere
