|Arsenal transfer news: How Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stopped Ousmane Dembele deal
| wwwpic5678 PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG will “tear up” the Premier League this season and it’s for that reason that Arsenal haven’t signed Ousmane Dembele. That’s the opinion of Gunners legend Martin Keown.Arsenal have been linked with a move for Barca forward Dembele, who cost the Catalan club £142million a year ago but struggled for regular starts in his maiden year. Dembele’s chances of regular minutes have been further hampered by the addition of Malcom from Bordeaux.
With Unai Emery reportedly hunting for a winger, the Frenchman has been touted with an Emirates Stadium switch. And the transfer mill went into overdrive last week when Dembele was pictured alongside ex-Borussia Dortmund team-mate Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in London.
But former England defender Keown believes that given the huge fee Dembele would command, there is little chance of the 21-year-old joining before Thursday’s window deadline (5pm). wwwpic5678 Yet the player-turned-pundit doesn’t see that as particularly negative news, tipping Aubameyang to be a key man for Emery’s charges.
“I don’t know, maybe it’s good for the fans,” Keown told the Daily Star.“I don’t see it happening. It seems like it’s an absolute fortune for the player, it doesn’t look likely. “But maybe the Arsenal fans are hoping for that sort of marquee signing. I think that work was done last year with Aubameyang.
“Aubameyang is going to be a player that I think could really tear up the Premier League this season so we’ll have to wait and see how that happens.“It’s great because in a week’s time all the talking stops and we’ll see who’s the best.“I think Arsenal wwwpic5678 will be well prepared because the manager’s had longer to work with his players than everybody else who’s been back to pre-season training.
