Victor Osimhen will leave Napoli in the summer amid Arsenal interest

With no football action for Arsenal this weekend, transfer speculation and rumours are certain to dominate the headlines for the Gunners over the next few days.

Despite Mikel Arteta\’s squad needing some glaring reinforcements, the north Londoners are yet to sign a single player in the January transfer window. Talk of Ivan Toney moving to the Emirates Stadium have gone quiet since his return to action for Brentford and any hope of signing a new striker will have to wait until the summer.

Fortunately, a fresh and encouraging update on Victor Osimhen\’s future at Napoli will leave Edu Gaspar and Arteta on red alert. The Gunners have been linked with the prolific goalscorer for some time but are said to be behind Chelsea in the race for him.

Now, despite him signing a new deal at the end of last year, Osimhen will leave the club in the summer transfer window. That\’s according to president Aurelio De Laurentiis, who has confirmed the club will lose their biggest asset.

Speaking on Friday, he said: “This was already known since this summer, our negotiations [over the new contract] were friendly, otherwise it would not have been so long. We knew he would go to Real Madrid, PSG or a top English club.”

Chelsea may be the front-runner to sign the 25-year-old, but Arsenal will also be keen on constructing a deal.
