Arsenal given new Victor Osimhen price as transfer interest cools in Premier League striker

A look at all the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours as Mikel Arteta’s men pick up the pieces from their defeat to Crystal Palace.

Arsenal suffered a huge blow in their bid to land a top four spot on Monday night after a defeat to Crystal Palace.

The Gunners were thrashed 3-0 at Selhurst Park, and they now remain fifth place, behind Tottenham, albeit with a game in hand still to play.

Mikel Arteta’s men will feel they missed a big opportunity against Palace, but they must now prepare to deliver a big response against Brighton on Saturday.

In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news surrounding the Gunners.

Osimhen could cost big this summer

Osimhen price raises

Napoli are said to have raised their price for Victor Osimhen amid reports of interest from Manchester United.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Osimhen, but according to Corriere dello Sport via Footall Italia, Napoli have become acutely aware of the value of their frontman.

The report claims they will now accept no less than £100million.

Osimhen has scored four times in his last two starts for the Neapolitans, who are gunning for the Serie A title.

Dembélé blow

Ousmane Dembélé has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent months amid uncertainty over his Barcelona future.

The Frenchman is out of contract this summer and could be available for nothing this summer, already rejecting a number of Barca offers.

But Gerard Romero and many others are now reporting that Barca have resumed contract talks, with chief Mateu Alemany heading to Morocco to meet with the winger’s agent on Monday.

Arsenal have steered away from the possibility of signing Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer. The Gunners are desperate to bring in a forward but are exploring other options. (Football Insider)

Calvert-Lewin interest cools

Arsenal are said to have cooled their interest in Everton star Dominic Clavert-Lewin.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the England international as they continue their search for a striker.

But according to The Telegraph, Arsenal have moved on from Calvert-Lewin for the time being.
