Arsenal has been linked with a move for Victor Osimhen since he played for Lille in France.

The Gunners were unable to land him before he moved to Napoli in Serie A and the Nigerian is proving to be one that got away from Mikel Arteta’s men.

His goals and all-around performance are one reason his present team are at the top of the Serie A table.

The striker continues to consistently score for them, but he may have been scoring these goals for Arsenal instead.

This is because Arsenal made an offer for him in the summer, but it was rejected by the Italian side, a new report reveals.

Umberto Chiariello, presenter of Campania Sport on Canale 21 made the revelation recently.

“Luciano Spalletti’s team, in the best of predictions, was given fifth, while I saw them ready to bite Milan. It is a team that has been re-established,” Chiariello was quoted as saying by Area Napoli.

“De Laurentiis went ahead with his vision: lower salaries, the confirmation of Victor Osimhen after Arsenal’s offer of €80m and the bet on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia”

Victor Osimhen’s hat-trick saw Napoli continue their winning run as they thrashed Sassuolo 4-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
Napoli are now unbeaten in their last 16 Serie A matches and have won their last 13 games, with Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia the stars of the show on Saturday.
The pair now have 16 goals and 11 assists between them this season.
Osimhen linked up with Kvaratskhelia for his first two goals which came inside 19 minutes.
Kvaratskhelia got on the scoresheet himself as Napoli went into half-time 3-0 up.
They continued their dominance in the next 45 minutes, with Osimhen completing his hat-trick by intercepting a poor Sassuolo pass and chipping the ball over Andrea Consigli. Napoli are now six points clear of Milan, who play Torino on Sunday night.
