Real Madrid has added Victor Osimhen to their transfer wishlist as they seek to add new attackers to their squad by the end of this season.
The Nigerian has been on Arsenal’s radar since he played for Lille in France, but Napoli beat them to his signature two seasons ago.
He has continued to develop well and might leave the Serie A side if they are offered the right money.
Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier that Arsenal has turned their attention towards a move for him after missing out on Dusan Vlahovic.
Todofichajes is now reporting that Madrid is also keen to add the Nigerian to their squad.
The report claims they will move for him if Kylian Mbappe eventually remains at PSG instead of moving to the Bernabeu.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Osimhen is part of a list of strikers Arsenal has lined up in their bid to refresh their attack.
His goal-scoring rate is impressive, and at 23, he can only get better.
Mikel Arteta has been signing much younger players recently and the Nigerian will move to the Emirates with a lot of experience despite his age.
It would be interesting to see if we can convince him to swap Naples for London.
This is never gonna happen;
1) Napoli signed him for a record fee of about €80m and will want more of they’re to part ways with him. The arsenal I know wouldn’t want to spend that much.
2) Arsenal stand no chance in getting a player that Madrid is really interested in signing. They can offer champions league football, trophies, etc. They also pay any amount to sign a player with much higher wage that arsenal will ever want to pay.
3) Osimhen loves playing football and show casing his skills on the pitch, Arteta is not gonna let him do that.
So all these rumours are dead on arrival
I think any forward player would struggle in Artetas system .
I just hope that Martinelli isn’t pushed into that CF role for the remainder of the season and the fans start getting on his back when he cannot produce the goods .
