Arsenal Legend Begs Club To Raid Napoli For Osimhen


Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen could be the final piece in Arsenal’s Premier League title jigsaw, with Emmanuel Petit drawing up transfer plans.

The Gunners have fallen narrowly short in back-to-back campaigns as they attempt to get their hands on a long-awaited domestic crown.

Manchester City are proving to be an immovable object, with the Blues making history with four successive triumphs.

More movement on the recruitment front is expected at Emirates Stadium this summer, with Petit – speaking on behalf of BoyleSports, suggesting that a raid on Italian Serie A former champions for a proven goalscorer should be launched.

The Frenchman said: “I think Arsenal need a 30-goal striker to finally win the Premier League and that man could be Victor Osimhen, who has been amazing with Lille then Napoli. His dream is to come to England and he could be brilliant here. He’s physically so strong and is an out and out number nine, so he’d be my first choice. But as I mentioned, I also think Rashford would be a great addition as he can play out wide and up front. To compete with Man City, Arsenal need four more players, though. City can bring on five players with incredible quality and right now, Arsenal can’t, so they need to have a busy summer ahead.”

Osimhen hit 31 goals for Napoli in 2022-23 as they savoured Serie A title glory, but dipped slightly this season.
