Arsenal battle Chelsea for £120m Victor Osimhen transfer fee

Arsenal have entered the race to sign Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, joining Chelsea in pursuit of the £120 million-rated forward.

Mikel Arteta is reportedly eager to bring in the Nigerian striker to bolster Arsenal’s attacking options, for a Premier League title push.

While Chelsea have been tracking Osimhen for 18 months now, TeamTalk reveals that Arsenal are prepared to challenge their London rivals for the striker’s signature.

Sources have also said that Arsenal have added Osimhen to their wishlist, with Arteta expressing admiration for the Napoli frontman.

While former Chelsea player Obi Mikel, have actively worked to convince Osimhen that Stamford Bridge is the ideal destination for his career, Arsenal’s interest poses a potential challenge.

Napoli, known for their shrewd negotiations style, values Osimhen at a substantial £120 million.

Despite contractual ties wit the Naples club until 2025, the Nigerian forward and a Chelsea supporter, could be swayed towards the Blues.
