Shaka Hislop has backed Nigeria star Victor Osimhen to join English Premier League side Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The former West Ham goalkeeper believes that Osimhen is the ideal choice for the Gunners, citing his physicality, height, and aerial prowess as key attributes that would benefit the team.

Hislop has urged Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to make Osimhen the club’s primary target, emphasizing the striker’s finishing skills, which he feels are currently lacking in Arsenal’s other strikers.

“He ticks all the boxes that Arsenal need. He provides the physicality, if not a little bit more than Kai Havertz does in terms of height and set pieces,” Hislop was quoted by ESPN.

“He provides the finishing that Gabriel Jesus promised but hasn’t delivered in the past couple of seasons.

“If I am Mikel Arteta, I am making Osimhen my number one target and then we see who else we can sell and replace and where else we can strengthen in the squad.

“But without question, the first order of business is that style of finisher and I think Osimhen ticks all the boxes that Arsenal need.”

After announcing his intention to leave Napoli this summer, Osimhen has attracted interest from several top clubs in Europe.
