Arsenal considering blowing £25million on very risky transfer

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly considering a surprise transfer swoop for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele this summer.

The Frenchman is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid and has struggled for form in his time in La Liga, which could make Arsenal fans slightly worried about a move to sign him.

Still, the Telegraph name Dembele as one of the players Arsenal are keeping an eye on ahead of the next transfer window, with the Frenchman possibly available for £25million this summer.

On recent form, that seems a lot of money to be paying for a pretty poor player who surely wouldn’t represent an upgrade on what the Gunners already have up front.

Still, Arsenal may be pretty desperate as the Telegraph suggest Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah might both be on their way out of the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season.

Dembele has previously shown some promise at Lyon, so he could end up being a decent signing if Mikel Arteta can get him back to his best.

It’s a risk, however, and Arsenal fans will surely hope the club can find someone a bit more inspiring to come in and breathe new life into their attack after such a dismal season.

  1. Absolute rubbish. It’s terrible to learn Arteta considering guys like this when there are better strikers allover the place.
    Any striker who isn’t an upgrade on Lacazette makes no sense

  2. Here we go again. Why can’t someone tell our club’s hierarchy that we need someone who knows what he is doing to do recruiting. Look what you’ve done recruiting Chelsea’s rejects and they turn out to be complete pants. I mean Luiz, Willian and Nketiah vary in uselessness but by and large are all useless. Please wake up, fans are totally fed up seeing good kids like Willock having to leave club to get playtime. Arsenal is a classic comeback kids who’ve done it before.many times..Coming from 14th one season winning title. Arsenal unlike Liverpool, Man utd and Liverpool never dominated the league. We always come from behind to nick it but with quality players that we currently don’t have.
    We are fed up seeing our club where it is and need someone to act.
