3. Osimhen is younger than Jesus

It works in the potential new signing’s favour that he is younger than what’s available to Mikel Arteta at the moment. Interestingly, he is the same age as Nketiah, 24 years old, making him two years younger than Gabriel Jesus (26).

These two years may not seem like much, but it’s an extra two years of development under one of the best coaches in the world, Arteta. Osimhen has greater potential since he’s playing at a higher level than Jesus despite being younger.

As I mentioned earlier, these margins may be small at face value but in hindsight, Mikel Arteta could look back at making these micro-improvements as the basis for his success in years to come.

Do you think Arsenal would be doing the right thing by swapping Gabriel Jesus and Victor Osimhen?
