Victor Osimhen news

Arsenal favourites to land Osimhen?

Arsenal have a big advantage over Chelsea in the race to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

The Gunners have been in sensational form in the league this term and they are currently second in the table.

Regardless of this, they are expected to spend big on a new striker and Osimhen is one of the top targets.

Gazzetta dello Sport now claim that the club are ready to step up their pursuit of Osimhen in the coming weeks.

Chelsea are also admirers of the marksman, but the Gunners have a big advantage over their London rivals.

The Gunners look primed to qualify for the Champions League next term which the Blues are unlikely to do.

This could play a big role in luring the striker to the Emirates Stadium despite the Blues' long-term pursuit.

Osimhen netted 31 times for Napoli last term, but he has managed only eight this season amid injuries and AFCON duty.

He is still expected to be in demand ahead of the summer. The Gunners could face competition from PSG for him.
