Transfer: Campbell urges Arsenal to sign Osimhen
Arsenal legend, Sol Campbell has urged the club to sign Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen when the transfer reopens in January.
Osimhen has been linked with a move away from Napoli after failing to sign a contract extension.
Chelsea is also said to be interested in the Nigeria international.
Campbell claimed Arsenal need more firepower upfront.
The former defender stated that Osimhen will help improve the Gunners squad.
“Osimhen. But is he going to cost too much money? There’s Ivan (Toney). I think they’re good (in other areas of the pitch). Centre forward is one thing they might need to look at and see the possibilities, see what’s out there, or wait until next season,” Campbell to Mirror Football.
“But if the right person comes along, an out-and-out striker, that can unlock those tight games, knows what to do in those positions, and also keeps defence occupied to then free up other people, they should maybe look at it Christmas time and if not, definitely next season. The right person will offload the pressure on the team, I think.”
