Owen Hargreaves has urged Arsenal to make a summer transfer bid to sign Ousmane Dembele.

The 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward has earned a reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting young talents.

Arsenal are bound to be linked with a host of players in the forthcoming transfer window as the Gunners look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season following a disappointing campaign in the Premier League.

And former Manchester United star Hargreaves feels that Dembele would be the perfect signing for the Gunners this summer.

Hargreaves told BT Sport Premier League Tonight: “Arsenal need a right winger. Dembele at Dortmund, 19-year-old kid.

“He’s one of the best players in the Bundesliga. He has superstar potential. He’s what Arsenal need. I’m amazed that they haven’t tried to get him.”

Dembele has scored six goals and made 11 assists in 29 games in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund so far this season.
