‘Osimhen will help Arsenal push for PL title’ – Former West Ham star

Former West Ham star Shaka Hislop has advised Mikel Arteta and Arsenal’s transfer decision-makers to prioritize signing Victor Osimhen in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Hislop believes that acquiring Osimhen would significantly enhance Arsenal’s chances of clinching titles next season.

Close But No Title for Arsenal

Despite coming close to winning the Premier League title for the fourth consecutive season, Arsenal fell short and finished as runners-up, just two points behind champions Manchester City in the previous campaign.

Osimhen Linked with Premier League Move

Osimhen, who is set to depart Napoli, has reportedly expressed interest in joining the Premier League. Arsenal is among the clubs being linked with the 25-year-old Nigerian striker.

Hislop’s Recommendations

Hislop emphasised that Osimhen possesses the qualities that Arsenal need to strengthen their squad. He highlighted Osimhen’s physicality, which exceeds that of Kai Havertz, and his finishing ability, which surpasses that promised by Gabriel Jesus in recent seasons.

According to Hislop, Arteta should prioritize making Osimhen the club’s number one transfer target. Hislop suggested that Arsenal should focus on securing Osimhen’s signature before considering other transfer moves.

In conclusion, Hislop believes that Osimhen ticks all the boxes for what Arsenal requires in a striker. He emphasized the importance of securing a player of Osimhen’s caliber to bolster Arsenal’s attacking options and increase their chances of competing for titles in the upcoming season.

His words: “He ticks all the boxes that Arsenal need. He provides the physicality if not a little bit more than Kai Havertz does in terms of height and setpieces,” Shaka Hislop stated.

“He provides the finishing that Gabriel Jesus promised but hasn’t delivered in the past couple of seasons.

“If I am Mikel Arteta, I am making Osimhen my number one target and then we see who else we can sell and replace and where else we can strengthen in the squad.

“But without question, the first order of business is that style of finisher and I think Osimhen ticks all the boxes that Arsenal need.”
