Petit urges Arsenal to sign victor Osimhen


Former Arsenal midfielder, Emmanuel Petit, has urged the Gunners to sign Victor Osimhen.

The North London club are expected to bring in a new striker after falling short in their quest to win the Premier League again this season.

Osimhen, who is expected to leave Napoli this season, has a release clause of around €120 to €130m.

Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are among the clubs linked with the Nigerian.

Petit believed that Osimhen would be a good addition to the Arsenal squad.

“I think Arsenal need a 30-goal striker to finally win the Premier League and that man could be Victor Osimhen, who has been amazing with Lille and then Napoli,” Petit told Boylesports.

“His dream is to come to England and he could be brilliant here. He’s physically so strong and is an out and out number nine, so he’d be my first choice.”
