Osimhen flattered by interest as Arsenal initiate contact

Arsenal and a host of Premier League clubs are interested in the Napoli forward

Napoli attacker, Victor Osimhen is catching the eye at the Emirates and is believed to be flattered by the interest from London.

Osimhen who has been a subject of interest across Europe is believed to have seen Arsenal make initial contacts with his representatives about his availability.

A move is however not imminent as Napoli look to keep the attacker for at least one more season while the former Lille man doesn’t see Arsenal as the perfect destination at the moment.

Napoli transfer guru, Emmanuel Cammaroto believes Osimhen wants to play in the UEFA Champions League with Napoli and may not be making a move at the moment.

According to Sport Witness, Cammaroto said “the big names of the Premier League are following him and are beginning to come forward,”

“But Napoli’s idea is to keep the Nigerian centre forward at least for another season unless there are significant proposals. At the moment, Arsenal has come forward and has sounded out the player’s entourage. Osimhen has registered the interest of the Gunners, and it seems that he has been flattered by the proposal. But he doesn’t consider Arsenal a first choice for his career.

“The former Lille striker wants to play in the Champions League with Napoli, and then he will choose his future.”

Arsenal were shoo-in favourites for the Premier League’s fourth place and a Champions League slot but a slump in form in the past two weeks has seen the team slide into sixth place, and potentially away from quality acquisitions.

The Gunners are looking to bolster their current attacking options with heavy reliance on Alexandre Lacazette being one of the team’s undoing this season.
