Arsenal Ready to Offer £200k to Lure Star Player to North London

Arsenal have maintained “constant communication” in their pursuit to sign a star player this summer and are ready to entice him to north London with a weekly salary of £200,000.

Mikel Arteta’s team has experienced a notable surge in scoring prowess within domestic competitions over the past sixty days. Their thrilling 2-1 victory against Brentford extends their remarkable recent goal tally to 33 goals in the last eight Premier League fixtures.

These statistics are likely to unsettle contenders such as Liverpool and Manchester City as they vigorously vie for the league title.

Summer signing Kai Havertz has hit his stride at a crucial juncture for the team. However, recent accounts suggest that despite Arsenal’s significant progress in offensive capabilities, club officials are exploring additional options for a new striker.

Arsenal remain committed to acquiring a new center-forward this summer. Numerous prominent options have been linked with the club, and one persistent name is Brentford striker Ivan Toney. Toney, an England international, appears poised to depart west London when the transfer market resumes.

Simultaneously, there is speculation surrounding Arsenal’s interest in Napoli standout Victor Osimhen. Despite the potential costliness of his transfer, journalist Ben Jacobs suggests that Arsenal cannot be ruled out as serious contenders for the Nigerian forward’s signature.

“We still can’t rule out Arsenal in the race for Osimhen,” said Jacobs to GiveMeSport last month. “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.

The Nigerian striker is set to emerge as one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe when the transfer window opens. This follows a remarkable stint in Serie A, where he has distinguished himself as the league’s most prolific goal-scorer.

Osimhen recently penned a fresh deal with Napoli, believed to include a release clause of £113 million. This aspect is likely to capture the attention of sporting director Edu and his colleagues.

Arsenal in “Constant” Communication with Osimhen

TEAMtalk has reported that Arsenal have been engaging in constant communication with Osimhen regarding a potential transfer. It is understood that they are willing to offer him a salary of approximately £200,000-per-week as part of the deal.

Should this agreement materialize, it would elevate the 25-year-old to one of Arsenal’s highest-paid athletes. However, many argue that the investment is justified given Osimhen’s impressive performance in recent years.

Since joining Napoli from Lille, Osimhen has demonstrated remarkable prowess on the field, amassing an impressive tally of 72 goals in 125 appearances across all competitions. These statistics underscore his proficiency as a striker who consistently finds the back of the net.

Considering Osimhen’s talent and track record, the proposed £113 million transfer fee may even be viewed as a favorable valuation.
