Arsenal won't spend big on Osimhen

Arsenal remain interested in signing Napoli striker Victor Osimhen but they are unlikely to trigger his hefty release clause.

The Nigerian had an injury-affected campaign with Napoli, but he still scored 17 goals from 2,500 minutes for the Serie A outfit.

Osimhen has made the decision to move on this summer, but Sky Sport Italy claim that there are no clubs willing to spend big on him.

The Gunners are among his admirers at the moment, but they are unlikely to pay anywhere close to his €130 million release clause.

Unless Napoli are prepared to negotiate on the price, the Gunners could look elsewhere for a marquee striker in the upcoming window.

Osimhen has previously revealed his dream of playing in the Premier League, but that seems unlikely to happen as things stand.

Chelsea were heavily linked with him earlier in the year, but they are reluctant to meet his current weekly wage requirements.

Manchester United are no longer searching for another striker and the same can be said about Liverpool despite their woes up front.
