Reports in England suggest that Arsenal have already met with Victor Osimhen’s agent, hoping to rival Chelsea for the Napoli striker’s signature, with more details on his release clause.

The Nigerian international signed a new contract with Napoli in December, but president Aurelio De Laurentiis admitted that he’knew perfectly well he’d be leaving at the end of this season. Although Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been linked, the Premier League seems his most likely destination, and Chelsea are considered the favorites. However, the Mirror newspaper claims today that Arsenal have already met Osimhen’s agent to discuss the situation. Although it is known that there is a release clause in Osimhen’s new contract with Napoli, the exact figures remain a mystery. It is estimated at between 120 and 130 million euros, a figure confirmed by this latest Mirror report, which puts it at between £100 and £110 million. This is simply the transfer fee and does not take into account the salary to be offered to the 25-year-old, who last season won the Scudetto and became Serie A’s first-ever African top scorer. He is currently taking part in the Africa Cup of Nations, having helped Nigeria reach the semi-finals.
