Arsenal 'strike agreement' to sign Victor Osimhen in the summer

Arsenal are now thought to be leading the race to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in the summer transfer window ahead of Manchester United and Chelsea, according to a report from Spanish outlet Nacional [via Football365].

Of course, with no official offers having been submitted as of yet, nothing is finalised. Arsenal's need for a new centre-forward is becoming more and more prominent, as Arteta begins to lose confidence Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus' injury record becomes ever spottier.

Takehiro Tomiyasu to sign new deal with Arsenal

Arsenal are set to hand Takehiro Tomiyasu a new deal, following an impressive string of performances in the Premier League, according to The Athletic. He has been out on international duty with Japan in the Asian Cup - his dogged determination, as well as his adaptability, has been missed by the squad at large.

Earlier in the season, on Tomiyasu, Arteta said: "We don’t have a player like him. Defending, [he] is probably the best I’ve seen in many situations. His concepts, his principles, the way he applies them, the way he goes into duels. The way he reads danger and resolves urgent situations with a lot of composure.

"His skill to defend, the way his body is built, it makes him a really complete player to do that. It’s really difficult to get past him. He’s always alert, that’s the way he’s been raised and educated — he’s always super focused. For a defender, that’s a big, big attribute."
