Osimhen agent in London for Arsenal talks; push for Gabriel Jesus continues

Arsenal are eager to sign Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus AND Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

The Gunners missed out on Champions League qualification by two points on the final day of the season as arch-rivals Tottenham pipped them to fourth spot.

While Mikel Arteta's young side showed promise throughout the season, they did not have a reliable goal-scoring striker and accordingly ended the league with eight less goals than Spurs.

Goal says Osimhen's agent flew to London for talks with Arsenal about a potential transfer last week.

However, the north London club understands Napoli will only consider offers considerably above the £65million that they played for the 23-year-old two years ago.

The Gunners may have a better chance with Gabriel Jesus, though.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has one year left on his contract with Manchester City but will slip down the pecking order when Erling Haaland arrives ahead of next season.

Jesus has scored 95 goals in 236 games for City, and appeared 28 times last season as they won the Premier League by a point.
