Arsenal have held talks with the agent of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen over a possible summer move. The Gunners are looking to reinforce their attack and want to sign two forwards this summer, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah expected to leave.
Goal report that they’ve held talks over a possible move for Osimhen as they continue their pursuit of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.
According to the report, the Napoli striker is ‘high up on Arsenal’s target list this summer’ and his agent flew into London last week for a meeting with Arsenal’s technical director Edu to discuss a potential transfer.
Despite their interest, Arsenal would need to convince Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis who values the star striker at €100 million, while the Azzurri’s qualification to the Champions League would make it difficult to convince the player to leave.
