Victor Osimhen has caught the attention of multiple clubs, and now the first team has reached out to Napoli to discuss purchasing the 25-year-old Nigerian forward.

Arsenal has initiated discussions with Napoli about acquiring Victor Osimhen during the upcoming summer transfer window, according to a recent update.

Since his transfer from LOSC Lille to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in 2020, the 25-year-old has emerged as one of Serie A’s premier forwards, significantly contributing to Napoli’s Scudetto victory last season.

Reports indicate the Nigerian forward is ready to depart Napoli this summer for the Premier League, having proven his capabilities in Italy’s top league. Il Mattino reports Osimhen has expressed his wish to leave to Napoli, with Arsenal showing strong interest in adding him to their attack.

Arsenal is actively pursuing the deal, having started preliminary discussions with Napoli. Il Mattino notes that Osimhen’s contract includes a £102m release clause, but Napoli might lower their asking price if no team meets this figure.

Osimhen to Arsenal

Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have also shown interest in Osimhen, but Arsenal leads the pursuit and is optimistic about finalizing his transfer before the next season.

Osimhen prefers playing in the Premier League, making Arsenal his top choice, especially since Chelsea cannot offer Champions League football next season.

Securing Osimhen, who has recently excelled at the highest level, would be a significant acquisition for Arsenal.

The outcome of Arsenal’s efforts to sign him, enhancing their attack for the forthcoming season, remains to be seen.

As Arsenal enters the international break leading the Premier League, they are set to clash with Manchester City, a close contender for the title, on Sunday afternoon. Arsenal aims for a victory to maintain their top league position.
