Arsenal Set To Complete Striker Signing As His Club Finds Replacement – Not Vardy

According to a report in the UK, Arsenal are preparing to offer France U-20 and Fulham forward Moussa Dembele a tempting and enticing contract this summer after his current contract with Fulham must have expired.

Though young , Dembele is highly rated by Arsenal as Arsene Wenger sees the youngster as one ready to make an instant upgrade from Championship football to Top Flight football like Charlie Austin of then Queens Park Rangers and Danny Ings of then Burnley did in the 2014/2015 English Premier League season. Arsenal will be without Danny Welbeck who is currently injured and will miss majority of next season. Also to be considered is the inconsistent form of both Oliver Giroud and Theo Walcott who have not hit the goals needed for a club challenging for the Premier League trophy.

Dembele has been linked with various clubs but the likes of Galatasaraay, Liverpool, Juventus and Fenerbahce are the most prominent ones. In April, he was in the executive box in Stamford Bridge as a guest of Chelsea in a Premier League game that Manchester City inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Chelsea. The former PSG trainee has voiced his admiration for his former club and made it public he would not hesitate to go back and play for the club if the chance arises.

Dembele scored 16 goals in the Championship last season as Fulham escaped relegation to the League Two. It is not yet clear if Arsenal are serious about the deal but one thing is clear and that is : Moussa Dembele would not hesitate on any deal from Arsenal as they club is one of the biggest in Europe. As a free agent, he would cost
nothing and also it is expected that he would not earn much at the club as he is still a youngster and one for the future.

Arsenal are serious for a striker after Jamie Vardy declined a move to the club until after the European Tournament in France where he will make his decision public after Arsenal triggered his £20 million release clause and made him an offer of £120,000-a -week wages.
