Arsenal are approaching the conclusion of a very disappointing season, knowing that the summer transfer window holds massive significance.
The Gunners are sat in mid-table in the Premier League, with European football looking to be out of reach at the moment, especially after the Europa League semi-final exit to Villarreal last week.
Mikel Arteta ‘s side have struggled in front of goal this season, with the usually reliable Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finding it difficult throughout the campaign.
The north London club have been linked with a host of new forwards to try and solve this issue – which has seen them score just 49 goals in their 35 league games played.
According to the Telegraph, the Gunners are ‘weighing up a move’ for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the summer.
There’s uncertainty over the futures of Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette, who have both been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium when the season ends.
The report claims that Arsenal have looked into Dembele’s availability this summer, with the Frenchman currently on loan at Atletico Madrid.
This supposed interest isn’t new, though, with the Daily Record reporting back in 2020 that Arsenal have ‘maintained an interest’ in Dembele since 2015 – meaning it’s now six years of watching the former Celtic talisman.
The 24-year-old forward has endured a frustrating season on a personal level, with the Frenchman featuring just 22 times for both Lyon and Atletico, and in that time, he has found the back of the net just once.
Dembele has just over two years remaining on his current contract at Lyon, who have found goals from other avenues this season.
