Although every Arsenal fan and his dog are talking about Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation, nobody has even mentioned that Danny Welbeck is also set to leave on a free next summer, with not even a hint of contract extension talks. So the rumours linking us with the excellent Celtic striker Moussa Dembélé could make sense if it’s true.
EPLscouts have reported today…..
Arsenal are considering plotting an offer for Celtic striker Moussa Dembélé in January transfer window, according to reports from France.
The north London outfit haven’t got off to the greatest start in the current Premier League season, having lost their opening two matches to Manchester City and Chelsea.
While there is nothing to panic about yet, manager Unai Emery is already eyeing up possible reinforcements for the winter window who could add more strength in depth to his squad.
And according to the French-language daily newspaper La Provence, reported on by Mirror Sport, the London side are targeting the 22-year old Frenchman.
Dembele was brought through the academy at PSG, and was blooded at Fulham where he scored 15 goals in a season at just 19 years old. He has scored 26 in just 55 starts for Celtic, and at just 22 years of age he still has lots of scope for improvement.
Do you think he would be a good replacement for Welbeck?
Here is a video of his play for Celtic last season to help you decide…
