SSC Napoli of Italy striker, Victor Osimhen has found a fresh startling development coming his way in his summer transfer saga, as Arsenal of England have reportedly lodged an official €100 bid for his signature.
The report out of Queensland adds that Arsenal remain in the hunt for another proven striker heading towards the summer transfer window, The Gunners have now stepped up their efforts to hook Osimhen at the end of this season.
Megasportsarena.com gathered that, while also keeping former Chelsea hitman, Tammy Abraham on their radar, Freddie Paxton disclosed that The Gunners have now formally contacted Osimhen’s representatives.
This provides fresh temptation to star in the English Premier League for Oismhen, who had previously been approached by Newcastle United.
Paxton further revealed, though, that the former Ultimate Strikers of Lagos, VfL Wolfsburg of Germany, Sporting Charleroi of Belgium and Lille Metropole of France ace would prefer moving to Emirates Stadium.
Osimhen would, however, be further encouraged to make that move if The Gunners make it into next season’s UEFA Champions League.
At the same time, a deal coming through also depends on if The Gunners can raise €100 million (£84m/$107m) it will require to prise him away from Napoli.
It would also mean the London club would need to weight their financial strength, as they have already been told that they will have to pay around €80 million (£67m/$85m) to sign Abraham from another Serie A club, AS Roma.
The report by Football.London added that Arsenal have Abraham high on their list of possible targets this summer, but they are also in talks to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
