Abuja - Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen is set to join Arsenal ahead of
Tottenham Hotspur, the Metro UK reports.
According to several reports in the UK, Arsenal are in talks to
sign Osimhen after reportedly hijacking his move to Tottenham.
Osimhen is hot property after scoring 10 goals in seven matches to

Nine major European clubs have since made approaches for his
signature, while Tottenham had apparently agreed a deal to sign him.
But now reports in England say Arsenal are in talks to take the
striker to the Emirates Stadium.
It’s claimed that Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is holding talks
with the head of the Nigerian Football Federation Amaju Pinnick about a transfer.
Agents working for Spurs are talking to Osimhen’s club Ultimate
Strikers Academy about a deal, meaning Arsenal need to move quickly.
