Arsenal are leading the race for in-demand €100m star

Arsenal are reportedly leading the race for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen has been in fine form since moving to Napoli from Lille and has been attracting interest from clubs around Europe.

The Nigerian striker would cost around €100m, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, via Sport Witness, who also list Newcastle, Manchester United and Tottenham as other interested parties.

However, according to a more recent report from Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Arsenal are believed to be leading the race for the striker.
