Gunners are favorites to sign Victor Osimhen over Newcastle


ARSENAL are the bookmakers’ favorite to beat Newcastle in the transfer race to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli.

The Gunners are in the market for a striker as there is a chance that Mikel Arteta’s attacking options will be completely overhauled this summer.


Mikel Arteta could sign the Napoli ace this summer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks set to leave Arsenal after being frozen out by Arteta, while Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both out of contract this summer.

Betfair have the Gunners at 5/2 ahead of Newcastle at 5/1 in their market.

Arsenal have missed number one target Dusan Vlahovic and Osimhen could be Arteta’s next stop.

The 23-year-old is on the Gunners’ radar and they are eyeing a summer move worth around £60million.

The striker has scored nine goals in 16 games for Napoli this season.

He arrived at Napoli following a whopping £66million move from Lille in 2020.

Osimhen missed the Africa Cup of Nations after testing positive for Covid for the second time.

With Napoli seemingly set to sell the youngster for the right price, Newcastle could swoop in as they seek to avoid relegation this season.
