VICTOR OSIMHEN: Arsenal ahead of Manchester United and Newcastle in race to sign 23-year-old forward



Arsenal are reportedly leading Manchester United in the race to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli this summer. The Nigerian striker is a target for Liverpool and Newcastle United as they look to add firepower to their attack.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Napoli are open to selling Osimhen this summer and will encourage a bidding war.

The Italian side are not willing to let him leave for cheap and have slapped a €100 million price tag on the striker, who has scored 13 goals in the league this season.

Mikel Arteta's side desperately need a striker as they will be without a senior forward at the end of the season.

Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are heading towards the end of their contracts and will become free agents in the summer. Arsenal are looking to replace them and reportedly have no plans to offer them new deals.

Manchester United will also be in the market for a striker as Edinson Cavani is set to leave the club at the end of the season. The Uruguayan has not played much this term and is reportedly eyeing a move to La Liga in the summer.

Manchester United target was close to Arsenal switch in the past

Victor Osimhen has revealed that Arsene Wenger tried to sign him during his time at the Emirates. However, the Nigerian striker rejected the offer and decided to join Napoli.

The Gunners are once again in the race to sign him, but Manchester United are ready to fight them until the end.
