Arsenal Sporting Director says Arsenal are ready to break the bank for £250k-p/w world class striker with a record transfer fee of over £100M

Regarding football transfer rumours, the most recent chatter involving Arsenal and Chelsea is about Victor Osimhen, a striker for Napoli. The ongoing drama is clarified by renowned journalist Ben Jacobs, who suggests that rumours surrounding the Nigerian sensation’s future have not been dispelled despite his recent contract renewal with Napoli.

Osimhen signed a long-term contract with the Serie A team, but because of a huge £111 million buyout provision in the contract, rumours still circulate. Due to this condition, there is conjecture that the prolific striker—who is being pursued by both Arsenal and Chelsea—may be on the move.

In an interview with Givemesport, Jacobs goes into further detail about the specifics of the case. He makes the observation that, despite Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) financial resources, Osimhen would prefer to play on English Premier League fields. Even though PSG could have more money now that Kylian Mbappe is gone, Osimhen’s attraction to the Paris team is still strong. But the Premier League appears to be calling the most, giving Arsenal and Chelsea the opportunity to present their respective cases.

Under investigation is the deal’s financial component, since Osimhen is allegedly looking for pay in the region of £250,000 a week. The fact that clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and PSG can afford such high demands shows how much interest there is in the talented striker.

Osimhen has shown to be one of the best players in Europe’s top divisions, thus there is no denying his skill on the pitch. His stellar season of goal-scoring for Napoli last season, which saw Napoli win the Scudetto after a long absence, thrust him into the public eye. Osimhen has managed to maintain a respectable strike rate this season despite dealing with injuries and international duties; in just 20 games, he has scored 10 goals.

The club is more interested in signing Osimhen because Mbappe is expected to leave PSG soon. Nonetheless, Osimhen’s decision-making process seems to be primarily motivated by the appeal of Premier League football. Given his affection for the late Didier Drogba, the striker may find sentimental value in Chelsea, but Arsenal appears to be a more alluring option, especially considering their high ranking in the Premier League standings under Mikel Arteta’s guidance.

Osimhen might be an appealing addition to Arsenal’s famed red and white jersey in a season where the team is in a fierce title fight with teams like Manchester City and Liverpool. On the other hand, Chelsea’s period of transition brings some ambiguity to their efforts to sign the Nigerian player.

The football community is anxiously awaiting Osimhen’s next move while the transfer drama plays out, with Arsenal and Chelsea now leading the battle to capture him.
