Arsenal set to battle Manchester United for Victor Osimhen’s signature
Arsenal have taken a step forward in their pursuit of Victor Osimhen and have made contact with the striker’s camp, according to Emanuele Cammaroto via Sport Witness.
The Gunners have reportedly made contact with Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, but are yet to persuade him to join the club.
Victor Osimhen’s name has been on everyone’s lips in recent weeks, as the striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League. No less than three teams in the country are reported interested in his services, but luring him away from Napoli in the summer would be a difficult feat.
The Serie A heavyweights are expected to demand more than £100 million for the 23-year old, in order to deter some of the world’s best teams. The Premier League clubs, on the other hand, are eager to keep trying to find a way out.
Arsenal and Manchester United are among the clubs interested in signing the Super Eagles striker.
The Red Devils regard Osimhen as a possible summer replacement for Cristiano Rolando and may approach him when the window opens.
Arsenal, on the other hand, are set to intensify their pursuit of the Nigerian striker after commencing negotiations with him.
According to reports, Osimhen is flattered by their offers, but isn’t persuaded that joining the Emirates is the appropriate decision for him at this point in his career.
Nonetheless, the Gunners are expected to follow through on their first discussions and investigate the costs of signing the Nigerian striker.
Osimhen could possibly choose to stay at Napoli next season and compete in the UEFA Champions League. He has a long career ahead of him at 23, and is not in a hurry to make a decision.
