Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, might be unable to leave his club in the coming transfer window due to his hefty price tag.

The 25-year-old striker has grown in leaps and bounds since joining Napoli from LOSC Lille in 2020, scoring 76 goals and providing 18 assists in 133 games for Gli Azzurri.

After four years at the club, the Nigerian striker has set sights on a move to a bigger team, preferably, in the English Premier League.

During his stay in Italy, Osimhen won the league for Napoli. Individually, he won the Italian Player of the Year and CAF Player of the Year awards, whilst claiming the 8th position in the 2023 Ballon d’Or rankings.

In December, Victor Osimhen penned a new deal with Napoli, that will see him stay at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium until the summer of 2026. The deal also included a €130m release clause.

While Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have the financial superpower, Arsenal do not, and have set their sights on cheaper targets like RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Šeško.

As per Calcio Mercato, there are currently no serious offers on the table for Osimhen. Mikel Arteta finds the former Wolfsburg striker perfect for Arsenal, but there is a difference between the preference of a manager and an investment of this magnitude.

Mauricio Pochettino was a big fan of Osimhen, but the Argentine was fired after a year with Chelsea. The Blues have been linked to Enzo Maresca, and it is yet to be seen if the Italian will be interested in bringing the Nigerian to the Stamford bridge.

PSG do not consider Osimhen a priority at the moment, as they currently have Randal Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos as options up-front.
