Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has advised the Premier League club to sign Victor Osimhen in January.
Osimhen has been tipped to leave Serie A champions Napoli in January.
Campbell, who believes the Gunners need more firepower upfront urged his former club to move for the striker when the transfer reopens early next year.
“Osimhen. But is he going to cost too much money? There’s Ivan (Toney). I think they’re good (in other areas of the pitch).
“Centre forward is one thing they might need to look at and see the possibilities, see what’s out there, or wait until next season,” Campbell to Mirror Football.
“But if the right person comes along, an out-and-out striker, that can unlock those tight games, knows what to do in those positions, and also keeps defence occupied to then free up other people, they should maybe look at it Christmas time and if not, definitely next season. The right person will offload the pressure on the team, I think.” READ ALSO:
