Ousmane Dembele isn’t enjoying life at Barcelona because he doesn’t get many chances and the club has threatened him about how he is always socializing yet the club needs him. Arsenal has been linked with the French international for weeks now and Barcelona recently told interested clubs how much he costs.
A new report by the Mirror claims that Arsenal will use Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as their secret weapon in convincing Ousmane Dembele to come to the Emirates Stadium since they have a close relationship after having been played together at Borussia Dortmund. It is no secret that they have a close relationship because Ousmane Dembele even attended Aubameyang’s child birthday party in the summer and everyone was in shock, thinking that the French international wanted to join Arsenal.
Ousmane Dembele is a versatile attacker that would add flair to Unai Emery’s attacking line which already has players like Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Lacazette. One other advantage Arsenal would have in negotiations with Barcelona is that their current head of recruitment Sven Mislintat was a former director of Barcelona, so maybe he would have connections that could speed up the process.
The gunners are currently on an unbeaten run of 16 matches but their last three Premier League matches have shown that they are still not good in creativity and scoring, so getting Ousmane Dembele would help them get more goals.
