SHOCKING NEWS: Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Arsenal will not continue to pursue a transfer deal for Victor Osimhen,  The reason behind their decision is UNBELIEVABLE with the Nigerian striker eager to move to the Premier League.

According to Footballwave, Arsenal will not be pursuing a transfer agreement for Victor Osimhen.


Mikel Arteta’s team is prepared to shelve their interest in Osimhen, despite the Nigerian international’s recent prominence on the Gunners’ radar as they look for a goal-scoring No. 9. Osimhen is set to sign a new contract with Napoli.

Regarding a possible transfer, discussions had been held with both Napoli and Osimhen’s agent; however, for the time being, these matters have been set aside.

Their decision was made because they are ill-prepared to fulfil the 24-year-old’s new contract’s release clause with his current team.

While the exact cost of Osimhen has not been disclosed, estimates place its price between €130 and €140 million.

With just 18 months remaining on his contract with the Serie A champions, Arsenal had previously hoped to sign him for a much lower price. The Emirates side refuses to match this revised amount.

Chelsea will compete against Osimhen
Osimhen is still anticipated to depart Napoli in the summer, and Chelsea is still keeping a close eye on the highly productive striker. The Stamford Bridge team is in a strong position to sign the hitman, in fact.

Although the news of Arsenal’s withdrawal from the competition is encouraging for the Blues, it is still unclear how they will go about signing the former Lille forward.

The striker is still being watched by Real Madrid. Although Kylian Mbappe is still a top target for Los Blancos, he has made it plain in recent weeks that he prefers to play as a No. 9, implying that even if they sign the PSG striker, the Bernabeu team will still need to make an investment in that position.

Numerous Saudi Pro League teams are also interested in signing the forward, viewing him as a player who could cause a major upheaval in the football world by signing him.
