Napoli have rejected a ‘mega bid’ value a staggering £76million from Arsenal for Victor Osimhen, in line with sensational reports from Italy. The Nigerian frontman has worked his way onto Mikel Arteta and Edu’s striker shortlist but it surely appears the Gunners can have to smash their transfer record to land the highly-rated Nigerian international.
Arsenal have long admired the 23-year-old, who’s now recognised as probably the greatest young centre-forwards in world football.
The north London club considered a move for Osimhen during his time at Lille, while legendary boss Arsene Wenger also held talks with the player following the Under-17 World Cup way back in 2015, when Osimhen starred in attack for Nigeria
But lots has modified since then, most notably Osimhen’s value with Napoli set to demand a premium to be able to conform to any sale this summer.
In accordance with Italian outlet Calciomercato, the Serie A club have now rejected a gap offer from Arsenal value £76m (€90m).
