Arsenalis keen to swap Napoli’s Victor Osimhen for Gabriel Jesusin order to boost their Premier League title challenge.
Arsenal have had a successful start to their 2023-24 season and they are looking to add attacking reinforcements to improve on last year’s second place finish.
The official social media channel of his club taunted Nigerian star Osimhen.
The Express claims that Gli Azzurri has included Jesus on their list of candidates to replace him if the 24-year old decides to end his stay.
Since joining Arsenal from Manchester City in the summer of last year, Brazil’s international player has been out for a significant amount of time. He also suffered a serious knee injury during the World Cup held in Qatar.
Mikel Arteta was reportedly frustrated by his 17-game absence during the last season and considered other options, having already spent hefty sums on Declan Rice.
The Gunners may be able to strike a deal that would satisfy both sides, but they will have to pay hefty sums of money to secure one of Europe’s top strikers.
Six of the 27-cap Napoli international’s 26 league goals from Napoli’s winning season have already been scored in eight Serie A games in 2023-24.
According to previous reports, Osimhen’s contract with Italy still runs for two more years.
