Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal transfer target and Napoli star Victor Osimhen will cost an eye-watering £100million, according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
Di Marzio told wettfreunde: “I don’t think he will be sold for £80m because he was bought for £70m.
“So, I think that [Napoli owner Aurelio] De Laurentiis is very smart to buy and very difficult when he has to sell the players.
“I don’t think he will let Osimhen go for less than £100m – minimum.
“So, it depends on which club in Premier League will have all this money to spend in the market only for one player.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal have joined the bidding war with Manchester United over Monaco star Aurelien Tchouameni.
Tchouameni is being eyed by several other top European hitters and Di Marzio says Prem giants are among the 22-year-old’s top admirers.
But the midfielder could cost £60m after picking up eight caps since his France debut in September.
The Gunners could lure Tchouameni with the possibility of Champions League football next season while United are rebuilding under incoming manager Erik ten Hag.
And Arsenal have been given a transfer boost in their pursuit of Max Aarons, with Norwich set to sell the star.
Relegation has left Canaries chiefs considering the future as they look to rebuild in the Championship ahead of next season.
Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa confirmed Dean Smith’s men would be going down for the third time in five years.
But their misfortune has opened the door to the Gunners, who have been linked with Aarons in the recent past.
According to The Telegraph, the full-back will be allowed to leave by Norwich this summer and the club will be keen to raise funds for their Championship campaign.
Finally, Arsenal loanee William Saliba reiterated his desire to stay at Marseille.
Saliba has thrived on loan at L’OM this season, having appeared in a whopping 49 games across all competitions.
Speaking to Amazon Prime via GFFN, the defender said: “My wish is to finish the season well, to leave on a good note in case I don’t come back.
“It would be my pleasure to come back no matter what. It’s not as if I know I’m not going to come back, it’s Marseille, it’s my club”
