Arsenal cautiously considering beating Man Utd to potential £43million transfer

Arsenal and Man Utd are looking at Ousmane Dembele.

Arsenal could reportedly be set for a transfer battle with Manchester United for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

The France international has not had the easiest of times at the Nou Camp, despite previously looking one of the most exciting young players in the world at former club Borussia Dortmund.

According to Sport, Arsenal and Man Utd are now both cautiously looking at Dembele and considering a move once they get a decent enough idea about his recent injury problems.

It does seem like a potentially risky deal for us if Dembele continues to struggle to stay fit, as we are not the kind of club who can afford to spend a lot on a signing and then see it not work out.

Still, the 22-year-old could now be available on the cheap, possibly for as low as £43million, according to additional information from the Daily Mirror.

We could do with strengthening in attack, and that could end up being a bargain if Dembele can get back to his best, with Nicolas Pepe not really having the desired impact at the Emirates Stadium so far.

United could be tough competition for Dembele’s signature, as they also undoubtedly need more options in attack after the failure of Alexis Sanchez since he left us to join them in 2018.

Sport also suggest the Red Devils could have an early advantage in this deal as they claim Dembele has spoken to Anthony Martial about life at Old Trafford.

    He will be a good signing but we have other priorities. My number one target would be Thomas Partey. Exchange him with Laca. Then get PSG left back for free. Now can sell Kola(20mil), Mustafa(15mil), Sokrates (15),AMN (10mil) to fund for a top class CB. Now sell Troirra(35mil),Elmeny(5mil),Miki (10mil), Ozil(Free) to Fund for a top class number 10 who can score and assist. Sell Xhaka(35 Million ) to fund for making the Loan move of Cellebos (25mill) and Mari (10 million ) permananet. With this money we can offer more to Aubamiyang to sign. If not then sell him to get Eduardo of Celtic.
    We may not hit the ground running with these much clear out. But it looks good for the future.

      And just agreeing with you too Phil! But then you cannot expect wet behind the ears kids to have the faintest idea of the real world, as most of them have never been alive when football still had real values.
      I am composing an article touching on this very point but concentrating on how fans(of all ages) have let football become infected with greed while turning our collective blind eye.
      And of the REAL opportunity this virus gives us all to regain SOME lost morality. Some morality will be regained inevitably but we fans can and must push for still more.

    Not sure about this one, talent is not enough, they need to have high stamina levels and full on commitment.

    Lacazette has low stamina, he has good commitment but he hasn’t got the stamina for it.

    Partey, that’s why he’s B2B, he ticks those two boxes, but I haven’t seen enough of him to gain a fair assessment overall.

    Dembele is a bit laid back for my liking, just as Niles is. He can turn up the heat/afterburners, but I’d rather someone who always looks switched on ..like Martinelli does, Saka does, Mane, Sterling, Gnabry, they always want to be on their toes. Having said that, I’ve not seen a great deal from Dembele neither, but my first impression was, he must be talented, but, he often looks more casual than I expected.

    We would have squandered a sweet 43m add the Pepe then it comes to a good sum and then fans will want to bash Kroenke for being stingy after we’d have squandered about 117m pounds on two players we didn’t need.
