BREAKTHROUGH ✅✅: Antonio Conte Admits Premier League Club Have Agreement With Osimhen

Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Victor Osimhen this summer. The Gunners are on the market for a new attacker, but it’s unclear if they will go for an out-and-out striker or someone who can play out wide.

Arsenal already have Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka on the flanks, and as well as Kai Havertz has done up front, he isn’t someone who will guarantee 20 or more goals a season.

For that reason, many fans are hoping for a new striker this summer, and Osimhen would be a great option for Arsenal. Now, his manager has opened the door for a transfer in this window.

Antonio Conte makes claim about Victor Osimhen after Arsenal links, Napoli have appointed former Tottenham boss Antonio Conte as their new manager.

The Italian had several demands from the Partenopei before accepting the job – one of which was that the club would not sell their best players.

That included the likes of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, André-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Stanislav Lobotko, who are all key to his project.

One player he did not mention was Osimhen, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Nigerian is one of the best strikers in the world. He has everything in his game and it is widely expected that he will leave Napoli this summer.

Conte was asked about the Nigerian, and he praised the striker.

However, the former Spurs boss has revealed that he has been informed by Napoli that there is an agreement in place between them and Osimhen to part ways in this window.

Conte said in a press conference, as quoted by the Metro: “As far as Osimhen is concerned, just as I knew very well about the situation of Kvara, Di Lorenzo, Anguissa, Lobotka, on which I have placed an absolute veto.

“Having said that, I know what the situation is regarding Osimhen. I know that there are agreements, that it is a situation different from all the others. I can only assist.

“He is a player of the highest level, exceptional, but I cannot enter into any discussion because it is part of previous agreements which have been clearly stated to me.”

Osimhen’s price tag is very high.

The Nigeria international, when he signed a new contract at Napoli in December 2023, agreed to have a £113 million release clause inserted in the deal (Goal).

That is a crazy amount of money, and Arsenal are not prepared to spend that much to sign Osimhen this summer.

Recent reports have revealed that Napoli have slashed his price to £85 million, which makes him a lot more affordable, but no club have made their move yet.

Arsenal are definitely interested in Osimhen, but reports have revealed that the Gunners only value him at £63 million, Whether Napoli would agree to sell Osimhen for that figure remains to be seen.
