Arsenal willing to go to €100M to beat Man Utd for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen

Arsenal are willing to go to €100m for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

Gazzetta.it says Osimhen, 23, is in high demand this summer.

The Nigeria international has scored 24 goals in 51 Serie A games since a £60m move from Lille in 2020.

And Osimhen is now ready to take the next step in his career by playing in England.

Manchester United are interested in a deal as Erik ten Hag looks to support Cristiano Ronaldo up front.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta reckons he would be the perfect replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, who has just rejoined Lyon on a free transfer.

Napoli are demanding £86m to let Osimhen go this summer.

Yet Arsenal have not been put off by the price tag, it's claimed.
