Summer Transfer: Arsenal refuse to pay Napoli £ 110.8m for  Victor Osimhen

Arsenal have informed Napoli that they will not meet Victor Osimhen's €130 million £110.8m) release clause.

Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta, wants a add a striker to his squad after narrowly missing out on the Premier League title this season.

One of the names on his list is believe to be RB Leipzig striker, Benjamin Sesko, and is available due to his €65m (£55.2m) release clause.

However, Sky Sports Italy report that although Arsenal rate Osimhen highly, they are unwilling to do a deal due to the high costs involved.

Napoli as a club are willing to sell Osimhen, but the club's president, Aurelio de Laurentiis, is holding out for a team that will pay the €130m (£110.8m) clause.

The Serie A club has received  no concrete proposals so far, and while Saudi Pro League clubs could afford such a high fee, Osimhen is keen on remaining in Europe.


Napoli could now decide to lower Osimhen's asking price, especially as they need the 25-year old's transfer fee to fund their new signings this summer.

The Serie A club are keen to reunite their new head coach Antonio Conte with Romelu Lukaku, who returns to Chelsea following a season on loan at Roma.

However, Chelsea are insisting that Lukaku's £38m release clause is met and the club believe that Osimhen would need to depart Napoli before the Italianside could move for the Belgian forward.

Chelsea have also previously shown strong interest in Osimhen but have ruled themselves out of the running to sign the striker this summer due to high transfer fee and concerns over his injury record.

Victor Osimhen's scored 15 goals for Napoli in Serie A this season.
