Arsenal urged to sign Anthony Martial and Ousmane Dembele by former star Lauren

The Gunners have been tipped to land reinforcements when the January transfer window opens after a strong start to the new season.

Emery’s men find themselves just one point off the top four.

And some fresh faces could give Arsenal the boost they need to move ahead of London rivals Chelsea and Spurs.

Barcelona star Dembele has been strongly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp after falling foul of their timekeeping laws.

While Martial could pack his bags at Manchester United as he is yet to agree a new contract.

Lauren believes the French duo would be perfect additions to Emery’s squad.

And he has urged the tactician to do all in his power to bring the pair to the Emirates.

Speaking to Sportingbet, Lauren said: “I think Arsenal should do everything they can to sign Dembele.

“Everything about his style of play matches what Arsenal are looking for.

"He isn’t getting the playing time at Barcelona, or playing in his strongest position, but Arsenal’s high intensity will allow him to reach his potential.


“Dembele can play on either side of the pitch, which is a bonus and he’s showed that he can do it against the big teams, coming off the bench to rescue points for Barcelona. I would love to see him at Arsenal.

“If Martial doesn’t renew his contract at Man Utd, Arsenal would be crazy not to try and snap him up.

“He’s a fantastic player and is starting to show what he can really do when given a good run of games.

“Martial won’t go anywhere without being guaranteed first-team football, which I think he would get at Arsenal.”
