Arteta decision means Chelsea can sign £350k-a-week demanding superstar!

Osimhen
Premier League bound?

It has again been claimed that Arsenal have made a decision about signing Napoli star Victor Osimhen this summer, which will give Chelsea a transfer boost.

Having narrowly missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City, Arteta and Edu Gaspar will be looking to bolster their Arsenal squad in a number of departments ahead of the new season.

It is no secret that Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus are quality players – but they are not the type of strikers that will bang in 30 goals a season, something that will help the Gunners win that Premier League title.

Osimhen, 25, dreams of playing in the Premier League, according to La Gazetta dello Sport, but Napoli will stand firm on his €130m (£111m) release clause.

The Serie A giants have identified Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku and Girona’s Artem Dovbyk as replacement options, but will not lower their demands for one of the best strikers in the game.

The report also suggests that Osimhen is expecting Arsenal to make a move for him at some point this transfer window – and he would be interested in a move to the Premier League should the opportunity be given.

However, Sky Sports Italy claim that Arsenal have made it clear to Napoli they will NOT meet Osimhen’s £110million release clause and therefore have reportedly chosen not to pursue the big striker.

The transfer window opens up in just a few days time guys – there is so much speculation about the future of Osimhen but one thing is for certain, he would be a statement signing from the Gunners.

But now that Arsenal are out the chase for the big man – it will give CHELSEA a real boost as it will be another big club that has pulled out of the chase.
