English Premier League outfit, Arsenal are reported to be suffering a major setback in their bid to land Nigerian international Victor Osimhen in this summer transfer window while Liverpool and Napoli are believed to be making big progress.

The Gunners had indicated an interest in the Nigerian international but have lost out of the chase as Napoli are believed to have gone ahead by agreeing on personal terms with the forward.

An official announcement ought to have been made by the Italian outfit but there was a setback that caused a delay. It is now claimed that some issues might have been resolved and there have been progressed in the last few days.

However, Liverpool are believed to be enjoying big progress in the chase as well after refusing to give up. It is reported that Victor Osimhen’s new agent is keen on a deal with Liverpool and hoping to have it sealed ahead of Napoli.

Victor Osimhen recently sacked his former agent and have employed William d’Avila as his new representative. The new agent has, therefore, been in contact with manager Jurgen Klopp, hoping their relationship could help a deal.

French Ligue 1 outfit Lille are hoping to cash in about £80 million from a deal for the Super Eagles forward.
