Arsenal set to make Osimhen bid next summer: Arsenal are apparently exploring a strategic move to sign Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen in the summer of 2024.

Despite not being a traditional large spender among the Premier League’s elite clubs, Arsenal is willing to invest significantly in the future of their squad.

This development has opened the door for the Gunners to make a high-profile approach for Osimhen during the upcoming summer transfer window. Arteta may release one of Eddie Nketiah or Gabriel Jesus to make room for the entrance of a top striker, which the team has lacked in recent seasons.

Osimhen previously turned down a move to the North London club in 2015. However, given his recent triumphs and increased market value, things may take a different route today.

According to Transfermarket, the Nigeria international is presently worth €120 million. Napoli is desperate to keep its top player and pay him the highest-paid player in club history. Aurelio De Laurentiis, the club’s president, has met with Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, at the club’s training camp in Castel Di Sangro to discuss the parameters of a new deal.
