Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan has expressed his approval of the club’s impending signing of Declan Rice and has shared his opinion on another player they should consider splurging on.
Morgan, known for his outspokenness about the club’s direction, took to social media to offer his advice to Arsenal’s decision-makers.
With the Gunners on the verge of securing the £105 million deal for West Ham captain Rice, Morgan urged the club to remain relentless in their pursuit of challenging Premier League champions Manchester City.
He believes that one key addition could propel Arsenal further and provide the goal-scoring prowess needed to end the club’s 20-year title drought.
Morgan singled out Napoli’s Victor Osimhen as the player who could lead Arsenal to glory, describing the Nigerian striker as world-class.
Osimhen’s impressive performance in Serie A, where he scored 26 goals in 32 games, played a pivotal role in Napoli clinching their first Scudetto in 33 years. Speculation has been swirling around Osimhen’s future following his standout season.
Morgan tweeted: “It’s brilliant that Arsenal seem to have won the race to sign @_DeclanRice who will be a monstrously good addition to the team.
“But if we want to win big trophies, we also need a world-class striker who will score 25+ goals a season. I’d break the bank for
Several top clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain, have expressed interest in signing Victor Osimhen, the 24-year-old striker. However, Napoli’s hefty valuation of £150 million has posed a significant obstacle in negotiations.
Despite the player’s impressive performances, Arsenal’s involvement in the Osimhen transfer seems unlikely for this summer.
