The 23-year-old Super Eagle is having a great season with Napoli where he has managed nine Serie A goals from 11 matches so far
Arsenal fans have urged the club’s top hierarchy to move with speed and sign Victor Osimhen to replace the injured Gabriel Jesus in the January transfer window.
The 25-year-old Jesus picked up an injury while representing Brazil against Cameroon in the ongoing 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar and has reportedly been ruled out for three months.
It means Ghana prospect Eddie Nketiah will have to step up (along with partner Gabriel Martinelli) in the absence of the former Manchester City forward.
Despite the presence of Nketiah, the injury has prompted Arsenal fans to storm social media where they have backed the signing of 23-year-old Nigeria international Osimhen, who is having a great season with Serie A outfit Napoli.
If Arsenal do not consider the deal for Osimhen, they have challenged the management to recall Nigeria prospect Folarin Balogun, from his loan spell at Ligue 1 outfit Reims.
