Arsenal legend urges Gunners to sign Barcelona attacker Dembele

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged his former club to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The 21-year-old joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for £135 million in the summer of 2017, although the talented forward has struggled to settle at the Nou Camp.

Arsenal’s manager Unai Emery and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat are known the be big admirers of Dembele and Parlour reckons that the highly-rated youngster is the type of quality signing that the Gunners should be targeting.

“He’s a quality player,” Parlour told the Daily Star.

“He would definitely bring more quality to the team. That’s the sort of player you’ve got to be looking at.

“I think they do look at the background as well – how he would affect the dressing room? Will he knuckle down and work hard?

“That is down to the people who are buying the players now to look into his character. I’m sure they know lots of guys who have dealt with him.

“He’s a quality player so if Emery can handle his personality then he certainly would make the squad better and the team better.”
