Personal terms agreed! – Man Utd ready to ‘agree deal’ for £52m target after Victor Osimhen blow in January transfer window

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen had previously been linked with a big-money move to Arsenal in January, while Manchester United are set to battle the Gunners in their pursuit of another transfer target

It’s December 25 and you know what that means… there’s just one week until the January transfer window opens!

As Arsenal’s players and staff enjoy the festivities ahead of their return to Premier League action against West Ham in three days’ time, the Gunners are mulling over how to strengthen their title charge with more big-money signings.

Boss Mikel Arteta is open to the idea of incomings, but deciding on which players will leave north London could be just as important to help balance the books.

Arsenal will face competition from Manchester United should they attempt to sign Real Sociedad winger Takefusa Kubo.

The Japan international, 22, is enjoying a terrific campaign with the San Sebastian outfit, who’ve reached the Champions League knockout stages, and he’s subsequently left Arsenal scouts impressed.

As reported by Mundo Deportivo, United are willing to pay Kubo’s €60million (£52m) release clause and would even offer seven times his current wage. The former Real Madrid prodigy, who spent four years with bitter rivals Barcelona in his youth, has a deal with Real Sociedad until 2027.

Osimhen pens new Napoli deal
Victor Osimhen has committed his future to Napoli by signing a bumper three-and-a-half-year contract extension on Saturday.

Arsenal had been tipped to sign 24-year-old Osimhen in January as a statement transfer move, but now the Gunners will need to look elsewhere should they want to recruit a new striker.
