This past week, a transfer fantasy seems to have been hatched. Victor Osimhen has hinted he’d love a switch to the PL in one of the upcoming transfer windows. This saw a revelation pop up this week that Arsenal are favourites to sign him, but are they really that?
Fabrizio Romano thinks not and said so on Caught Offside when discussing Arsenal’s transfer probabilities. The European transfer guru said via Caught Offside, “I don’t have it confirmed as of now. Arsenal have Gabriel Jesus, Nketiah, Balogun, and Osimhen’s price tag will be really huge. I think Arsenal have different priorities for this summer, including a new midfielder.”
By now, it is known that Arteta has his eye on Declan Rice joining his project in the summer. To sign the West Ham man, it is no secret that Arsenal will have to spend big for his acquisition, even if he is in the last year of his contract at the London Stadium.
Rice’s deal would take a huge chunk of Arteta’s budget, so signing Osimhen could affect Arsenal’s ability to bolster other positions they need bolstered. The hope for Gooners who like Osimhen is that other teams who also want Osimhen fail to sign him, he remains at Napoli, and Arteta goes back for him at the next opportunity.
All in all, imagine Rice and Osimhen at the Emirates; they could make Arteta’s team the deadliest.

Our interest in Rice is similar to Osimhen in my opinion, pure speculation and on the fans wish list and not necessarily on Arteta’s. I don’t think either will be joining us.
Of course, we will be interested in him, but who won’t ?
Getting him is another matter.
Winning the League & getting C/League football isn’t going to guarantee us these super players.
We pay less wages etc than a lot of other clubs.
A very good player but I agree our priorities are in midfield.
The way we play make us good without over relying on a top top striker, it’s like the old man’s City of last season without Haaland.
We need two midfielders in my opinion and with all the noise and fan fanfare about Rice and company, this Onana kid impresses me the most.
Onana and Zubimendi could solve our midfield puzzle for years to come and they well within our budget with funds to spare
RealTalk. I also feel that Onana is a better fit for us than Rice. Zubimendi is the icing on the cake…Jus sayin
If he is to move to the Premier League I suspect Man Utd or Chelsea will be keen to acquire him as neither of these sides currently has a top quality central striker.I may add that I do not regard Rashford as a CF.At the end of the day however I imagine he will end up with Real Madrid as Benzema must be on his last legs.
Arsenal should go for Osimhen,considering the fact that Gabriel J is prone to injury.Osimhen is even better than Gabriel J.pls.Go for him.
In the article it says that a revelation popped up that Arsenal are favourites to sign Osimhen, how on earth does anyone know that. It’s just pure speculation and lazy writing on the part of whoever wrote it. Yes, we might be interested if he ever did become available ,as would a raft of clubs , but to say we are favourites is just plain daft.
