Arsenal‘s new chief scout Sven Mislintat has become acquainted with the famous Arsenal Fan TV, and has already been quizzed by one of the YouTube fan channel’s contributors about the chances of signing Ousmane Dembele.
The German arrived at the Emirates earlier this year and has been put in charge of the first-team recruitment and is probably the man behind summer signings such as Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and French teenager Matteo Guendouzi.
New manager Unai Emery appears to have done the bulk of his summer spending, but it appears Troopz reckons there’s one or two high-profile editions still to be made.
Given Ousmane Dembele is reportedly looking for a way out of Barcelona this summer, lifelong Gunners fan Troopz wondered whether the French World Cup winner might be a target – but he was getting nothing out of Mislintat:

Barcelona paid over £100 million to sign Dembele from Borussia Dortmund last summer, so could we really see Arsenal making a bid to sign him this year?
Probably not, but nice try anyway, Troopz!
