Arsenal have had a bid rejected for Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele, and will hopefully return with another one.
The French international is one of the best players in Europe currently, and for me is the next player who will challenge for the Ballon D’Or for a number of years.
Antoine Griezmann looks to have hit his ceiling in terms of ability, and for me Neymar and Ousmane will be the ones to take over from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the coming years.
We failed in a bid to sign the 20 year-old last summer when he opted to move to the Bundesliga side, and he has hit the floor running in Germany, nailing 21 assists and 10 goals in his debut season.
The BVB are claimed to have told his representatives that he is not for sale, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both believed to be interested, although an offer in the region of £89 Million is believed to have been set.
Dembele would be a better alternative to replace Alexis Sanchez than Thomas Lemar, having proven his ability for longer and while adding much more to the attack, and I dare say I imagine he would prove to be a better player than the Chilean…
I pray that we can persuade the player and his club to strike a deal, and the Alexis departure can be taken so much lighter with goals and creativity already having been brought back into the side.
Is there a better option to replace Alexis Sanchez who can be deemed realistic?
