Big star sent message about joining Chelsea


Gary Lineker has suggested that Napoli star and long-term CHELSEA FC target Victor Osimhen joins Arsenal.

It is no secret that we have been eyeing a move for Osimhen even before Mauricio Pochettino took over as boss last summer – but have been unable to get a deal done as Napoli had no intention of letting him leave.

The transfer speculation has continued this January window as the club were still keen to sign a big-time striker – but with the financial fair play rules catching everybody out – no deals have really been done this month.

The 25-year-old penned a new deal in Naples last month, but it is said to include a release clause of £112m – and it now looks like Napoli are willing to cash in on the star with a move to the Premier League mooted.

But despite all te speculation suggesting that we are leading the race to get the Nigerian star signed – pundit Gary Lineker has opened up and told the big striker that a move to Arsenal may be the best switch to make.

He told the Rest is Football podcast: “I think I’d look at it and I’d go, at the moment, Arsenal.

“Obviously, we’re talking about everyone offers the same thing, that’s what you want, blah blah blah in your contract. I mean, to be honest, they earn so much now that you can just choose where you want to go.

“I would say, Arsenal are probably a centre-forward away from winning things. CHELSEA FC are a centre-forward away from becoming competitive again. Manchester United are a centre-forward away from improving, but they’ve still got a long way to go.

“If I were him, you want to go somewhere where you think you’re going to win things.”
