BREAKING: SPORTS: ‘Incredible’ player has decided he wants to join Chelsea, but Arsenal are still keen

Victor Osimhen reportedly favours a move to Chelsea but Arsenal are still keen on a move for the Napoli striker.

Both Mauricio Pochettino and Mikel Arteta are expected to be in the market for a new forward player this summer.

Arsenal have been in free-scoring form of late but are still lacking a prolific striker, with both Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah failing to score regularly this term.

As for Chelsea, their woes in the final third have been evident despite a recent upturn in form and their finishing ultimately let them down in Sunday’s League Cup final.

The two London clubs have been heavily linked with a move for Victor Osimhen ahead of the summer.

However, according to TEAMTalk, sources have stated that Osimhen views a switch to Stamford Bridge as his favoured choice.

Yet, the signing is far from guaranteed as both Arsenal and PSG remain keen.

Osimhen is a man in demand ahead of the summer, with a host of top clubs in the market for a new striker.

After propelling Napoli to a Serie A title last season, Osimhen has continued to find the back of the net frequently.

The 25-year-old is averaging a goal every two games this season, with 10 in 20 appearances for Napoli.

Osimhen has already been lauded as an ‘incredible’ striker and is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League.

But if reports that he prefers a switch to Stamford Bridge turn out to be true, Arsenal may well be better off focusing on other targets.

Nevertheless, Chelsea are in need of a striker like Osimhen and the fact he’s keen on a switch to west London is a huge boost for the Blues, particularly as they’ve struggled this season and could miss out on European football.
