Victor Osimhen Speaks Out On Arsenal Interest In Him

Napoli centre forward Victor Osimhen has admitted that a number of clubs are interested in him, amid speculation over where he will play his football next season and beyond.

The 23-year-old had a stellar season for Napoli, scoring 14 goals in 17 Serie A appearance and assisting two more on top of that.

As such, Osimhen has become hot property and is wanted by a number of clubs across Europe.

One of those clubs includes Arsenal, who reportedly made a £51 million offer for his services, which was quickly rebuffed by Napoli.

The Italian side reportedly value the player at no less than his £85 million release clause and would not be willing to part with the player until they receive that exact fee.

Osimhen, however, is keeping quiet on his future for now.

“I know there are many people that would like me in Spain or England, but I don't think it's the right time to talk about it now that I'm with the national team," Osimhen is quoted as saying by CalcioMercato.

“I always go out on the pitch to do my best both with the national team and with my club."

The Nigeria international scored four for his country midweek and acknowledged that he will have to take care of his next career steps in the near future.

For now, though, Osimhen just wants to rest and recharge.

“I don't know my future, I know anything can happen, but now I just want to go on holiday with my family, clear my head and recharge my batteries.

“Then we'll take care of everything else.”
