Arsenal Handed Huge Boost in Victor Osimhen Transfer Race

Arsenal is in a good position to sign Napoli’s forward Victor Osimhen, especially with Chelsea facing potential financial restrictions under the Profit and Sustainability regulations.

Chelsea recently disclosed their financial figures for the 2022/23 season, showing a pre-tax loss of £90.1 million. This loss has sparked worries about the club’s compliance with financial rules.

As Chelsea prepares for an important summer transfer period, aiming to add a top-tier striker to their lineup, Osimhen emerges as a key target.

But the financial challenges indicated by their recent statement may complicate their efforts, giving Arsenal an advantage in the pursuit of Osimhen.

Osimhen’s contract includes a €110m release clause, suggesting he could be available for transfer this summer.

David Ornstein, a reporter for The Athletic, has indicated that Chelsea might find it difficult to meet this release clause and afford Osimhen’s expected high wages.

After reporting a £121.4 million loss the previous year, Chelsea’s financial hurdles could clear the path for Arsenal to secure the Nigerian star.

Arsenal had shown interest in Brentford’s Ivan Toney, who might cost between £80-100 million, but their focus seems to have shifted to Osimhen.

As they didn’t engage in the January transfer window, Arsenal is anticipated to enter the summer market with significant funds available for acquisitions.
