Arsenal should not be ruled out in the race to land Chelsea target Victor Osimhen’s signature during the upcoming summer transfer window, and they are willing to meet his £250,000 per-week demands (about #489,415,368.00 million).

OwoSports.com.ng sourced from transfer expert Ben Jacobs (via GIVEMESPORT), who expects a heated battle for the Nigerian striker’s services in the summer.

The Gunners are among the frontrunners to sign the Nigerian international and are ready to meet his substantial wage demands alongside powerhouses Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Nigerian international has been a world-class performer during his time in Naples. Having netted 26 goals in 32 Serie A matches last season to fire Napoli to a long-awaited league title, the 25-year-old striker has scored nine goals in the ongoing season in 19 appearances across all competitions and provided three assists.

However, Jacobs insists that Arsenal’s candidancy for Osimhen should not be dismissed despite the fact that Chelsea appears to have an edge, and PSG also aggressively eyeing the Nigerian forward. The Super Eagles striker is seeking an estimated weekly salary of around £250,000, a figure deemed acceptable by all three clubs vying for his services.

Jacobs said to GMS: “We still can’t rule out Arsenal in the race for Osimhen. It’s also true that PSG have Osimhen very, very high on their list of targets and can move in the market because they will free up money due to Kylian Mbappe’s departure. I’m still told by sources that Osimhen’s priority is the Premier League, which is encouraging for Chelsea and Arsenal. He would be looking for about £250,000 per week, which Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG would all be happy to pay.”
