Arsenal are reportedly doing everything to get one over their North London rivals Tottenham in the chase for Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.

The London club who currently has one major striker in captain Alexandre Lacazette and an up-and-coming striker in Eddie Nketiah are out to get a proper striker.
