Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club
linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal seem to be bent on making sure they never suffer the striker issues they suffered in the years after Van Persie left Arsenal again, they have been stockpiling their youth teams with talented strikers and now want to add Nigerian U17 wonderkid Victor Osimhen to their ranks.
The highly rated 16-year-old who rose to prominence at the recent U17 world cup in Chile earlier this year, set the all-time goal scoring record in the competition after he scored 10 goals in 7 matches to beat SinamoPongelle’s record of 8 in the competition, and help Nigeria win the Trophy for a record 4th time.
The Golden boot winner has attracted attention in Europe with the likes of Arsenal, Wolfsburg and Tottenham credited with interest. His agent announced that the interests had been narrowed down to Arsenal and Wolfsburg, with Wolfsburg reportedly having made a substantial offer. But the striker is holding out for an offer from Arsenal with him revealing this in an interview
‘But I have not decided where to go yet because Arsenal are also showing strong interests and perhaps after my visit to the club, I will have a clear view of where I want to go.’
If he is convinced after the visit to Arsenal facilities, he would be joining DonylenMalen, Keylen Hinds, StephyMavididi and ChubaAkpom in Arsenal’s youth team.
