Arsenal reportedly identify Lille forward Victor Osimhen as a potential replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lille forward Victor Osimhen has allegedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Arsenal.

According to a number of reports, the Gunners will be unable to spend big money during the next window due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Arsenal find themselves in a position where they can choose to cash in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has just over a year left on his contract.

According to La Repubblica, that has led to club officials considering whether to make an approach for Osimhen.

Having scored 18 goals in all competitions this season, the Nigerian has been linked with a number of top European clubs.

One possible stumbling block could be Lille's valuation, which will likely be higher than the fee that Arsenal will be able to generate from the sale of Aubameyang.
