Arsenal are leading the race for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, according to Rai journalist Ciro Venerato in Tutto Napoli. The Italian reporter has claimed that Premier League trio Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea want to sign Osimhen from Serie A club Napoli in the summer transfer window.
The journalist said, as translated by Sport Witness: “For now, the big clubs only speak with the entourage of the striker. Paris Saint-Germain boast dated relationships with De Laurentiis.
“After the deals for Ezequiel Lavezzi, Edinson Cavani and Fabian Ruiz, it could be Osimhen’s turn, protégé of Campos and Gaiter (at Lille).
“The Premier League remains, Arsenal favourite, Manchester United-Chelsea duel. High bar for the price tag. The far-sighted De Laurentiis is asking for €150m for his star player.”
Arsenal are at the top of the Premier League table at the omens with 63 points from 26 matches, five points clear of second-placed and defending champions Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Napoli currently find themselves at the top of the Serie A standings with 65 points from 25 matches, as many as 15 points clear of second-placed Inter Milan.
