Arsenal are leading the race to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Nigerian international has been sensational form this season, having racked up 21 goals in 26 appearances, but it is believed that he could cost as much as €150m (£133m).
While many fans on Twitter would love to see Osimhen at the Emirates, plenty are sceptical about the Gunners paying so much for the player:
Pay all that money we have. We wont regret it!

There is no doubt that Osimhen will be in high demand this summer. Both Chelsea and Manchester United are also said to be very interested in signing the forward.
Whether he is a priority for Arsenal, though, is another matter. Many believe that the club’s main focus for the summer should be on strengthening the midfield and adding more depth so they are not overly reliant on Thomas Partey.
West Ham captain Declan Rice is said to be a key target and you do think that, if the Gunners are to break their transfer record, it will be on a player like the England international, rather than Osimhen.
