EPL: ‘Top player’ – Micah Richards says Arsenal should’ve signed Chelsea target in summer

Former Manchester City defender, Micah Richards, has claimed that Arsenal should have signed Chelsea target Victor Osimhen during the summer transfer.

Richards labelled the Nigerian international as a top player and one of the best strikers in the world.

Recall that Osimhen was linked with a host of top European clubs, including Chelsea, over the summer transfer window.

“Marvellous, he would be absolutely marvellous anywhere,” Richards said on Rest is Football podcast.

“This player is one of the best strikers. I was saying Arsenal should have bought him in the summer.

“It might have cost a little bit too much then. His price might have gone down a little bit if they want to do a deal (in January). But, yeah, he’s a top, top player.”

Arsenal have had to rely on an inconsistent Gabriel Jesus, an inexperienced Eddie Nketiah and a struggling Kai Havertz upfront this season.
