Reports making the round claim Arsene Wenger will turn to signing Moussa Dembele if Alexis Sanchez leaves Arsenal this summer.

The Chile international has just 12 months left in his current deal and is yet to agree a new contract deal with Arsenal.

And with reports making the round claim Sanchez has hinted he wants to play Champions League which Arsenal can offer having finished in the fifth position in the Premier League last season.

However, Dembele is the striker Wenger has identified as the one he wants to come in if Sanchez leaves.

The 20-year-old Frenchman scored 32 goals in 48 appearances for the Parkhead club in his first season in Scotland, following a move from Fulham.

Dembele has been valued at around £30m but in the wake of spiralling transfer fees this summer, Celtic are likely to want more for a player who has three years remaining on his contract.

Arsenal have already spent £52m on striker Alexandre Lacazette, but Wenger will need more firepower with Olivier Giroud lined up to leave for either Everton, West Ham or Borussia Dortmund.
