Manchester United have been linked with Victor Osimhen to move the Super Eagles striker this summer as the Old Trafford outfit are looking to strengthen their attack.
However, according to Italian sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Manchester Evening News, the Nigerian international has said that he would prefer a move to Arsenal over Manchester United.
The Red Devils are in the market for a centre forward with Uruguay marksman Edinson Cavani set to part company with the club in the summer after his contract expires.
The Gunners are also contemplating a move for Osimhen as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who joined Barcelona in the winter transfer window.
It is claimed that the Napoli striker is attracted to the Gunners because they could offer him Champions League football next season.
The Emirates Stadium outfit are currently sitting fourth in the table with 63 points accumulated. They are two more than Tottenham Hotspur who have a difficult game with Liverpool on Saturday evening.
Osimhen’s asking price could be a major stumbling block in a proposed move to Arsenal, with Napoli valuing their number 9 in excess of 100 million euros.
The 23-year-old has featured in 59 matches across all competitions since joining Napoli and has 27 goals to his name.
