Arsenal have been in constant communication to sign star, ready to offer him £200k-p/w as Edu chasing new striker for Arsenal – report



Arsenal have maintained regular contact in order to secure the signing of the star player, with plans to present him with a weekly wage of £200,000 – as per the report.


According to a recent report, Arsenal has been actively engaging in ongoing discussions to secure the signing of a prominent player this summer. In their pursuit, the club is willing to offer an enticing weekly salary of £200,000 to entice the player to join their ranks in north London.


The club’s Technical Director, Edu, is diligently searching for a new striker to bolster Mikel Arteta’s squad.


Arsenal has showcased an impressive scoring prowess in domestic competitions over the past two months, with their recent thrilling 2-1 victory against Brentford adding to their remarkable tally of 33 goals in their last eight Premier League matches. These numbers are bound to raise concerns among title contenders such as Liverpool and Manchester City.


Despite the notable improvement in the attacking department, Arsenal’s management remains committed to exploring additional options for a new striker. This demonstrates their ambition to further strengthen the team and maintain their positive momentum.


Arsenal remains determined to secure a new center-forward this summer, with Brentford’s Ivan Toney being a persistent name linked to the club.


Additionally, there are strong indications that Arsenal is a serious contender for Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, despite the potential cost of the transfer.


According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Arsenal cannot be discounted in the pursuit of Osimhen, especially considering the player’s preference for the Premier League. PSG is also a key player in the race for Osimhen, but the English top-flight seems to be the priority for the player, which bodes well for Arsenal and Chelsea.


Osimhen, the Nigerian striker, has emerged as one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe as the transfer window approaches.


His impressive performances in Serie A have made him Italy’s top scorer, leading to a new contract with Napoli that includes a £113 million release clause. Arsenal has been actively engaging with Osimhen, offering a lucrative salary of £200,000-per-week to secure his services.


With 72 goals in 125 appearances for Napoli, Osimhen’s goal-scoring prowess makes him a valuable asset for any team willing to pay the price.


Osimhen inked a fresh deal with Napoli earlier this season, reportedly including a £113 million release clause, a factor that Edu and his team might take into account.


This would elevate the 25-year-old to one of Arsenal’s top earners, but the investment seems justified given Osimhen’s outstanding performance in recent years.


With an impressive record of 72 goals in 125 matches for Napoli since his move from Lille, Osimhen has proven himself as a prolific striker who knows how to find the back of the net.


Paying £113m for a player of his caliber could be seen as a reasonable price.
