Arsenal wants to bring former Celtic hotshot back to England

Arsenal is targeting a move for Atletico Madrid loanee, Moussa Dembele ahead of a summer overhaul.

The Gunners will bolster their team when the transfer window reopens and they will likely sign a new striker.

Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah face uncertain futures at the club and the Gunners could decide to cash in on them if the right offer arrives.

The Telegraph claims Dembele could be the player that replaces them at the Emirates.

The Frenchman has spent this second half of the season on loan at Atletico from Lyon and the Spanish side can make the move permanent for £30million, but his poor form makes that unlikely.

He hasn’t scored since he moved to Diego Simeone’s side and seems to be struggling with fitness issues.

He is still just 24 and has a lot of room for improvement, which makes him the ideal player for Arsenal.

He previously had spells at Fulham and Celtic and was very prolific for the latter side.

He also enjoyed goal-laden first two seasons in France, but he has struggled in this campaign.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal will take a chance on him and bring him to England.

    Yeah, what a fantastic buy he is. Grand total of 1 goal this whole season. And amazing 15 and 16 Ligue 1 goals before.

    He’s worth less than £10m.

    Awesome, somebody else who hasn’t been getting it done elsewhere – I am sure that it would change once he gets to London :-).

    Honestly, I would rather sell Auba who will get us more money, than both.

    Give Laca a 3 year contract and make him the main man with Balogun as the back up.

    Give Eddie a 3 year contract and loan him out for a season.

    While we are talking about atletico, someone wanted to play Torreira and Partey together, why don’t we try that? Play Torreira in the role he was good at in front of the back 4. If we need something more attacking there is maitland-niles and guendozi. Willock as an alternative to Smith-Rowe. Elneny and Xhaka could be sold.

      Laca and Balogun rotation is good

      Auba and Martinelli rotation on the wings…..both can be the back up for 3 and 4th choice strikers tooo

    Spot on Atid👍

    Making a lot of sense here and I share same thoughts too.

  5. Atangana says:

    Bring someone who has failed in Spain to England? Crazy!
    Bring Buendia or Patson Daka who can score goals. Pair them up with no-nonsense goal porchers like Joe Willock.
    Bring Bissouma and jesse Lingard
    We need goals

  6. Marty says:

    So he hasn’t scored since he went to Atletico and he has fitness issues, just perfect for us then….

  7. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    No, flying in Scotland and France then struggling in Spain is not good.
    And he will come expensive and not a towering attacker.
    Arsenal should stop buying players who won’t integrate well or similar to what we have or out of form.
    With that said, he does not lack talent, just not what we need for now. He will be risky.
