Victor Osimhen has allegedly had a change of heart in his preferred destination next summer as top European clubs queue for his signature in the summer transfer window.

Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the frontrunners in the pursuit of the 25-year-old Napoli forward while Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with the Nigerian superstar.

According to Complete Sports, Italian, Valter De Maggio has claimed that Osimhen would prefer to join the Gunners this summer if he isn’t on a plane to play in the Saudi Pro League this summer.

“Osimhen wants the Premier League and, more specifically, Arsenal.
“If the right offer did not come from England, the center forward would seriously consider the proposal which has already been sent to him by Saudi Arabia.”

Osimhen still has one year left on his current contract with Napoli, but the Nigerian forward has been widely tipped to leave the Italian giants for a bigger European club when the transfer window opens.

Napoli waiting for Osimhen offers

Meanwhile, Napoli has disclosed they are yet to receive any offer for star forward Osimhen despite numerous reported interests in the Nigerian forward by top European clubs, Football Italia reports.

The 25-year-old Nigerian striker has continued to shine for the Partenopei this term, despite the team’s poor form and on-pitch struggles, netting 17 goals across 31 matches.

Napoli is eager to let Osimhen leave this summer as they await the activation of his €120-130 million release clause with teams like Chelsea, PSG, and Arsenal all being linked with the Nigerian striker.

Man United want Osimhen swap deal

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester United have been offered a cheaper option to sign Osimhen as the Red Devils continue their push to sign the Napoli striker next summer.

Italian agent, Andrea D’Amico, has urged the Red Devils to offer struggling striker Rasmus Højlund in a swap deal to sign the Nigerian forward from Napoli.
