What Victor Osimhen said that hints he could be joining Arsenal soon

As the Gunners struggle to find a striker, Victor Osimhen has been linked with a transfer to the Emirates.
If Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves, Arsenal will be without a viable option and will be forced to sign a replacement, as top target Dusan Vlahovic is close to joining Juventus.

However, the Nigerian international has already stated his desire to play in the Premier League and for Arsenal, which may persuade him if the Gunners agree to invest the money.

"After the event (Under-17 World Cup), I chatted with Arsene Wenger, and he wanted me to come to Arsenal," Osimhen told the Independent in 2020.

"I had a lot of possibilities available to me." Barcelona, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, and the rest are among the best teams in the world. Arsenal was a solid option at the time, but it wasn't the best. I was eager to begin playing as soon as I turned eighteen.

"I wanted to go somewhere where I could devote time to improving my game and physically." Wolfsburg demonstrated that option to me.

"Of course, I'd like to play for a great English team one day... My top priority is to play as many games as possible. "It's not exciting for me to sign with a major club and sit on the bench."

Arsenal, on the other hand, will have a hard time persuading Napoli to sign the striker.
