Chelsea, Arsenal still in race to sign Osimhen – Jacobs

 Premier League giants, Chelsea and Arsenal are still in the race to sign Victor Osimhen, according to transfer expert, Ben Jacobs.

Osimhen is expected to leave Serie A champions this summer despite signing a contract extension last December.

The forward reportedly has a release clause in the region of €130m attached to his new deal.

Aside from Chelsea and Arsenal, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in the player.

Jacobs, however, stated that Osimhen’s priority is to move to England at the end of the season.

“We still can’t rule out Arsenal in the race for Osimhen. It’s also true that PSG have Osimhen very, very high on their list of targets and can move in the market because they will free up money due to Kylian Mbappe’s departure,” the journalist told Givemesport

“I’m still told by sources that Osimhen’s priority is the Premier League, which is encouraging for Chelsea and Arsenal. He would be looking for about £250,000 per week, which Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG would all be happy to pay.”
