Osimhen not an upgrade to Arsenal’s Jesus – Silvestre

 


Former Arsenal star Mikael Silvestre has expressed skepticism about the potential signing of Victor Osimhen from Napoli, suggesting that he doesn’t see the Super Eagles as an upgrade to Gabriel Jesus.

Calls for Arsenal to bring in a new number nine have increased as Jesus has faced criticism for his goal-scoring record at Arsenal this season.

The Premier League North London club has been linked with Osimhen and Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

However, Silvestre feels Osimhen doesn’t drift as wide as Jesus.

“Osimhen, also a top player. Maybe a little bit more pragmatic in front of goal than Gabriel Jesus. I don’t think he’d necessarily be an upgrade,” Silvestre said as quoted by The Sun.

“He is a different type of player [than Jesus]. Osimhen doesn’t drift as wide as Jesus.”

“You always want your No.9 to score as many goals as possible but he’s [Jesus] contributing to Arsenal’s attack in different ways.”
