Premier League Giants In Transfer Battle For Osimhen

Arsenal and Newcastle United have reportedly turned their attention to Napoli Nigerian star striker Victor Osimhen as the Premier League duo target a striker this month.

Both clubs are hoping to bolster their attacking third during the January transfer window as Arsenal had made no secret of their desire to land Fiorentina ace Dusan Vlahovic.


However, the Serbia international is only interested in a move to Juventus and has rejected the chance to move to the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta has issues over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah. And the Spanish tactician has urged technical director Edu to find him a forward before the window closes.

The north Londoners have been linked with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Alexander Isak of Real Sociedad and Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic. And, on Tuesday, Spanish newspaper AS claimed they were keen on Espanyol striker Raul de Tomas.

But according to Gazzetta dello Sport, via Football Italia, they are now targeting 23-year-old Osimhen, who has bagged five goals from 13 Serie A appearances this term.

He scored 10 in 2020-2021 and 13 the previous season when he featured for French club Lille.

For Newcastle, they have been linked with so many players this month and have so far added striker Chris Wood and right-back Kieran Trippier.

New manager Eddie Howe, is desperate to acquire a new striker for the current battle against relegation. The Tynesiders sit 18th in the top-flight standings having won their second league match of the campaign.

They are a point from safety in what is looking like a five-way battle to avoid the drop. Teams that score goals usually have the edge in a relegation battle.

    Osimhen is having fun in Napoli. He should remain there. New Castle is too small for him. I mean, they cannot afford him. Arsenal may be okay if they can pay what Napoli may ask.
