Man United ‘leading Arsenal in race for Osimhen’

Manchester United are reportedly ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Napoli forward Victor Osimhen during this summer’s transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been in strong form for his Italian club during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring 16 times and registering five assists in 28 appearances in all competitions.

Osimhen still has more than three years left to run on his current deal, but there has been a host of speculation surrounding his future in recent months.

Napoli would allegedly be prepared to sell the Nigeria international during this summer’s transfer window if they received an offer in the region of £67m.

Arsenal were thought to be in pole position for the forward, while Newcastle United have also been strongly linked with his services following their lucrative takeover.

However, according to Corriere dello Sport, Man United are leading the race for the Nigerian, having already opened talks with his representative Roberto Calenda.
