Arsenal is reportedly gearing up to make a substantial offer of £120 million to Napoli in a bid to secure the services of Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. Osimhen’s impressive performance, contributing 26 goals and five assists, played a pivotal role in Napoli clinching the Scudetto after a 33-year hiatus last season.
With elite clubs vying for the 24-year-old forward’s signature, the competition to secure Osimhen’s services has intensified ahead of the upcoming transfer windows. According to reports from the UK tabloid Teamtalk, Arsenal is actively planning a significant financial move to secure Osimhen.
As Arsenal prepares to potentially break their transfer market record for Osimhen, Chelsea remains a strong contender for the Nigerian striker’s acquisition in the upcoming winter transfer window. However, Arsenal, currently competing with Manchester City for the Premier League title, appears to be more determined to secure Osimhen’s signature.

Osimhen’s stellar performance for Napoli over the past 18 months, especially his impressive tally of 31 goals in the previous season alone, has attracted interest from several top European clubs. Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, and Real Madrid are among the clubs that have expressed interest in the Nigerian forward.
Despite the increasing competition for Osimhen, Napoli is reportedly keen on extending his contract beyond its current expiry date of June 30, 2025.
