Osimhen Transfer Saga: Will Arsenal Meet Napoli’s Demands?.

Arsenal’s pursuit of a new striker this summer has hit a snag as their reported interest in Victor Osimhen appears to have stalled over his transfer fee.

While the Gunners are keen on the Nigerian forward, they are unwilling to meet Napoli’s hefty €120 million release clause. 

Osimhen’s stock has risen considerably after a prolific season in Serie A. His performances have solidified his status as one of Europe’s most coveted strikers, prompting Napoli to set a sky-high price tag to discourage potential buyers.  

However, reports suggest Osimhen has an agreement with Napoli that allows him to leave for the “right offer.” This has opened the door for clubs like Arsenal, who see him as a strong candidate to bolster their attack, especially after their failed attempt to sign Benjamin Sesko from RB Leipzig. 

The question now remains: will Arsenal be willing to meet Napoli’s demands or explore alternative options for their striking needs? The coming weeks will be crucial in determining Osimhen’s future and whether he’ll line up for the Gunners next season.
