Victor Osimhen the Napoli striker has said he hopes at some point in his career play for a big Premier League club, where he will be playing regularly.
Osimhen has been on super form as Napoli stay top of the Italian Serie A with a 100% record after eight rounds of matches.
“Of course, one day I’d like to play for a big club in England… my priority is to play a lot of games,” the Super Eagles striker told The Independent.
“Signing for a big club and being on the bench is not exciting for me.”
The striker recounted how he spoke with Arsene Wenger to join Arsenal six years ago.
“I spoke with Arsene Wenger after the tournament (2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile) ended and he wanted me to come to Arsenal,” he said.
“I had a lot of options. Barcelona; Inter Milan; Atletico Madrid; Juventus and the rest.
“Arsenal were a good option, but it wasn’t the best at the time. I wanted to start playing as soon as I turned 18.
“I wanted to go to a place where I had time to invest in my game and improve physically. Wolfsburg showed me that possibility.”
