Arsenal to Challenge Chelsea for Osimhen’s Signature

Arsenal is set to challenge Chelsea for the signature of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, with negotiations intensifying around a reported transfer fee ranging from €120-130 million, as indicated by the latest Mirror report citing figures of £100-110 million.

This transfer fee does not include the salary negotiations with the 25-year-old Nigerian player, who recently secured the Scudetto and became the first-ever African Serie A top scorer.

Currently participating in the Africa Cup of Nations, Osimhen has reached the semi-finals with Nigeria, adding to the intrigue surrounding his potential move.

Despite Osimhen’s new contract with Napoli, which was signed in December, President Aurelio De Laurentiis acknowledged the player’s imminent departure at the end of the season.

While Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also in the mix, Arsenal has reportedly engaged with Osimhen’s agent, adding another layer of competition to secure the striker’s services. The exact figures of Osimhen’s release clause remain undisclosed.
