Napoli target Smith Rowe as Arsenal consider Osimhen move

Napoli are reportedly keeping close tabs on Emile Smith Rowe as Arsenal consider a possible summer move for Victor Osimhen.

The Partenopei plan to revitalize their squad this summer after the struggles of their post-Scudetto campaign, needing to shake things up after finishing 10th in the Serie A rankings, missing European competition.

Napoli have accepted that Osimhen is likely to leave this summer, perhaps for his release clause worth around €120-130 million, and Antonio Conte is ready to take over in the dugout, showing the changes on the horizon.

Napoli turn to Smith Rowe

Page nine of today’s Corriere dello Sport details how Napoli are closely monitoring Smith Rowe ahead of the summer, appreciating his talents and aware of the transfer market opportunity. His current contract with Arsenal expires in June 2026.

As the Gunners consider a move for Osimhen this summer, some form of swap deal could take place, although Aurelio De Laurentiis will likely push for the full €120-130 million fee for the Nigerian striker.
