Arsenal have had a club-record switch bid rejected for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
In response to transfermarkt, Arsenal’s present file switch deal is the signing of Nicolas Pepe, who value the membership a whopping £72m. Nevertheless, The Gunners have reportedly tried to interrupt that file, having bid £76m for Osimhen, in keeping with Calcio Mercato.
That bid was nonetheless rejected, with Napoli wanting round £92m for his or her star striker. Though Arsenal want a striker this summer season, the switch charge demanded by the Italian membership is just a little extortionate. The Nigerian ahead is a confirmed goalscorer over the previous few years, however he’s nonetheless fully unproven in England.
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are each set to depart the membership because of their contracts expiring, so Arsenal aren’t going to obtain any switch charge for the duo. Though the London membership don’t look like in need of money, spending virtually £100m on a participant may come again to chew them, particularly contemplating how ineffective the signing of Pepe has been.
Spending giant sums of cash on youthful gamers who aren’t confirmed within the Premier League may be dangerous enterprise, so it is going to be attention-grabbing to see if Arsenal are prepared to fulfill Napoli’s asking value.
