Arsenal and Chelsea are prepared to pay around €90 million to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen at the end of the season.

The Nigerian star recently penned a new long-term deal with the Serie A outfit. As part of the contract, a €130m release clause was agreed.

It was initially reported that Napoli won't sell him for less but Il Mattino claim that club president Aurelio De Laurentiis could negotiate for him.

Arsenal and Chelsea are among the leading candidates to sign the 25-year-old, but neither of them are willing to offer more than €90m.

Paris Saint-Germain are also his admirers, but the French champions share the same stance as the London duo over the price tag.

Napoli could end up accepting the proposals, considering Osimhen seems determined to pursue a new challenge in the summer.

Osimhen has netted 13 goals in the current campaign. He has had a tough time with injuries, but remains highly-rated by his suitors.
