Can Aubameyang convince Barcelona ace to move to Arsenal?

Ousmane Dembele has been on the radar of Arsenal for some time now.

His contract at Barcelona is expiring and the Frenchman is set to decide on his future.

He could either sign a new Nou Camp deal or look for a new challenge elsewhere and Arsenal will want to become the next team that he plays for.

Signing him will not be easy, but the Gunners might have an advantage over other teams.

The attacker has recently revealed that Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is his best teammate.

Both players shared the same dressing room at Borussia Dortmund before he left the German side for Barcelona.

They enjoyed a fine relationship off the pitch and the World Cup winner has just revealed that Auba treated him well during their stay together in Germany and he is grateful to the Gabon striker.

Speaking to BeIN Sports via Sun Sports, he said: “Things went super at Dortmund, a super squad, (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang who welcomed me amazingly, even if it was quite tough with the German.

“Aubameyang really welcomed me well, he is the person that I have liked the most in football.

“And like I said Thomas Tuchel really convinced me, he is my favourite manager.

“With Thomas Tuchel I played a bit more on the right side at the beginning of the season, and then I was moved more centrally, in the 10 position, sometimes even in the midfield three you see.

“And he told me to stay a bit more central, have an espresso as he used to say to me, the ball will come to you and then you will go.

“It would have been hard to leave Dortmund if Tuchel had stayed.”

With Arsenal needing quality players on their team, they could ask Aubameyang to try to convince Dembele to make the Emirates his next home.

    Lets get one thing clear: we are a midtable club now. We won’t be luring any Barca, Bayern etc. players for a while.

    That being said, I don’t fancy Dembele at all. Expensive, injury prone and questionable attitude.

    I think you forget Arsenal is a midle table team. We will struggle next season to get quality players. Most top players want to be exposed in the european tournaments. Realistic targets, please.

    why do we want another injury prone player?

    hes talented but a little lazy

    he has not perform up to expectations since his departure from Dortmund

    I think we have the players to get us out of the mess we are in, bar 1 or 2 positions.

    What we don’t have is the right experience where it counts and that is the managers position.

    His guardiola style love in is all well and good when you have the right staff but we haven’t and he cannot accept that.

    Arteta is the problem along with Edu and the board’s lack of ambition and insight, hiring a negative novice manager to manage one of the best clubs in Europe was one of the daftest decisions I have ever seen. Arteta will not take the club forward, he has no blue print, no experience, he is a charmless person with no personality, his interviews are confusing, his tactics are so wrong, you can se the team doesn’t have a clue and the semi final against
    Villarreal proved he isn’t the man to lead us forward, he will take us backwards , we will struggle next season if he remains in charge, his transfer dealings have been terrible, his coaching rubbish.

    Will Martin never learn that players do not make foreign career moves simply because an ex team mate whom they liked and still like would be their new teammate. Life does not work THAT way in the real professional, money driven,honours driven but NOT teammate driven, REAL world!
    As you know perfectly well MARTIN, despite these constant false articles on here about so and so moving simply because he likes a team mate so very much that he can’t live without him! Grow up!

    Arsenal needs to spend any available transfer budget, firstly on upgrading midfield.
