Romano on Osimhen

Transfer 'insider' Fabrizio Romano has claimed Arsenal remain interested in Napoli frontman Victor Osimhen. He told Caught Offside: “We have been speaking about PSG, Arsenal and Chelsea for months…for sure these clubs are interested, I don’t think it’s new. It’s going to be important to see who is going to make concrete steps to sign Osimhen, but at the moment we’re not at that stage yet; and it’s the same on player side.

“Osimhen is focused on Napoli for now after signing a new contract earlier this season, even if the feeling was that he would probably leave the club this summer, so let’s see what happens closer to June/July.” Osimhen reportedly has a release clause worth well over £100million but he continues to be linked with a host of clubs.

Odegaard dazzles

Former Arsenal man turned co-commentator Alan Smith was blown away by Martin Odegaard's performance for Arsenal against Sheffield United. The Norwegian scored the opener and produced an inspiring all-round display in the Steel City.

"There are a few candidates for player of the match. Saka, Rice, Martinelli… But I’m going to give it to the skipper," Smith said on the commentary. “He has been at the heart of so much that has been so smooth, so spectacular at times.”
