It has been reported that Arsenal is considering a trade that would see 24-year-olds Gabriel Jesus and Victor Osimhen transfer teams next summer.
Fichajes claims that Arsenal are prepared to employ the Brazilian to get rid of Osimhen from Napoli next season.
Despite playing in a different league, the Premier League’s North London team is interested in trading for the Nigerian international because he is the ideal striker for boss Mikel Arteta’s system.
Napoli is aware of Arsenal’s aspirations and is actively searching for a replacement for Osimhen, in the event that he leaves the Serie A winners.
Meanwhile, Jesus is thought to be an option, though Napoli will likely require payment in addition to the Brazilian in any deal.
Despite interest from Chelsea, PSG, and Al Hilal, Napoli did not want to sell Osimhen during the summer transfer season.
The Serie A heavyweights demanded €200 million, but were turned down by the Saudi Pro League’s equivalent offer.
