Arsenal have just made contact to sign Osimhen after Sesko snub

Arsenal have been in contact with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen’s representative, according to Italian publication Il Roma.

The Gunners recently missed out on RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko after he decided to continue with the Bundesliga outfit.

Arsenal need to look at alternative options and Il Roma (via TuttoNapoli) claims Osimhen’s agent has been in contact with the club.

Osimhen wants to move to the Premier League and the Gunners seem the only option for him with the door to Chelsea having already been closed.

If there is no proposal from the Gunners, it seems certain the Nigerian star will receive an offer from Al-Hilal or Al-Ahly in Saudi Arabia.

Arsenal should not pay over the odds for Osimhen

Osimhen is regarded as one of the best strikers in Serie A, but Napoli’s valuation could hamper Arsenal’s prospects of signing him.

Napoli are currently holding out for the £110 million release clause in his contract and the Gunners are quite clear they don’t want to pay the figure.

Their stance is justified, considering Osimhen’s injury record over the years.

The 25-year-old netted 17 goals for Napoli last term, but he also missed ten games with multiple injuries.

The former Lille man also missed international duty this month with a fresh injury blow.

He would be a risky acquisition for such a huge outlay. For the price mentioned, Arsenal will want someone who can stay injury-free throughout the season.

Osimhen can be world-class on his day, but the Gunners should avoid signing him unless Napoli lowers their price to £70-80m.
