Arsenal eye Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen as potential summer target

Arsenal are reportedly in the hunt for Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen as they look to strengthen their attacking options in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 25-year-old has been in impressive form for Napoli this season, despite the club’s struggles as a whole. He has scored 15 goals and provided 4 assists in all competitions, earning him plaudits from across Europe.

Osimhen’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Arsenal not the only club interested in his signature. PSG are also said to be keen on the striker, with reports suggesting they are willing to meet his €120 million release clause and offer him a four-year contract worth €13 million per year. However, FootMercato claims that the deal is not as far advanced as has been reported.

Chelsea could also pose a threat to Arsenal’s hopes of signing Osimhen. The Blues have been tracking the Nigerian forward for some time, and rumors have circulated that an agreement has already been reached between the player and the club.

Viktor Gyökeres: Another potential target for Arsenal

Arsenal are also reportedly interested in Sporting CP striker Viktor Gyökeres. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a sensational season in Portugal, scoring 36 goals and providing 16 assists in 44 appearances across all competitions.

Gyökeres’ impressive form has attracted the attention of several clubs, including Arsenal. The Gunners are said to have made the Swede one of their top targets for the summer transfer window.

Hasan Cetinkaya, Gyökeres’ agent, has hinted that the player could leave Sporting if manager Ruben Amorim departs the club. The striker has a release clause of €100 million.

Arsenal’s pursuit of Osimhen and Gyökeres highlights their desire to sign a prolific striker in the summer transfer window. Both players have the potential to make a significant impact at the Emirates Stadium, but the Gunners will face stiff competition for their signatures.
