Arsenal’s new manager Mikel Arteta reportedly wants his club to make a move for Chelsea transfer target Ousmane Dembele, according to Caught Offside.

Arteta reportedly wants Dembele as a replacement for Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is reportedly unsettled at Arsenal.

Chelsea have reportedly met with the agent of Dembele with a view to signing him in January.

Dembele has struggled since his big money move from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona and the Spanish club is believed to be happy to let him leave.

The France international is currently out of action for the next couple of months with yet another muscle injury, and apparently believes he won’t be playing for the Catalans next season.
