Strange: Arsenal attacker hands transfer request to Arsene Wenger

Arsenal have decided to make offers for France international and Barcelona record signing Ousmane Dembele, according to reports.

Dembele joined Borrussia Dortmund in the summer of 2016 but his rise to fame and stardom was quick and unprecedented as he shone and imposed himself as dangerous attacker just after a year of moving to Dortmund.

Following the departure of Neymar Junior for Paris Saint Germain, Dembele was signed by the Camp Nou outfit in a £96million deal but a series of injuries appear to have affected his season.

While at Dortmund, Dembele combined with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to inflict heavy damages on defences. And now, Express Sports have claimed through Don Balon that Auba has asked Arsene Wenger to sign the silky forward, with further claims that the French tactician has given a thumbs on in the deal.

It is claimed by the report that the signing of Philippe Coutinho could limit the game time of the 20-year-old star and the Catalonia Club are looking at signing a more assured attacker which means Barcelona would sanction his departure.

Arsene Wenger bolstered his squad with top-notch players in the form Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan in the January transfer window but his side is yet short of some world class players and a natural winger, and so, he is expected to make some signings in the summer.
