Looking ahead to the future of the 23-year-old Nigeria international, the publication reports that he wants to play in the Champions League next season.

The Gazzetta goes on to say that ‘in particular Arsenal’ has taken ‘a number of solid efforts through intermediaries’ to sign the youngster.
The news is promising, even if ‘there is still no definitive agreement’, because Osimhen wants a club playing in the Champions League, and while the Gunners are currently fourth, one slip up could see Tottenham overtake them.
Arsenal hold a two points lead on their local rivals, having played the same amount of matches with five games to go.
