  • Emmanuel Petit has told Arsenal not to sign Ousmane Dembele
  • Dembele has struggled to make an impact since joining Paris Saint-Germain
  • Dembele has made 13 appearances for PSG this season

Arsenal have been told that Ousmane Dembele would not fit into their team and to move on from trying to sign the struggling Paris Saint-Germain forward in the future.

The 26-year-old French winger is struggling to find his feet with the reigning Ligue 1 champions, having not scored a single goal in 13 appearances since his switch to PSG in the summer.

According to GOAL, former Arsenal midfielder, Emmanuel Petit has warned the Gunners to stay clear of Dembele as he is not a right fit for the club due to his inability to convert chances.

"Dembele is struggling as he's under massive pressure at PSG. He wastes chances on many occasions, and he's not scoring goals. It's been a difficult start for him, so I can't say Dembele for Arsenal."

Arsenal were linked with a move for Dembele this summer before the 26-year-old opted to join PSG instead, a move that has not generated the expected outcome for the French winger thus far.

Dembele unbothered with goal drought

Meanwhile, Dembele has disclosed that he is unbothered about his lack of goals since signing for Paris Saint-Germain as long as he keeps playing well and helping the team win matches, Sempre Milan reports.

After 13 games for the Parisians, Dembele has been unable to find the back of the net once but has created three assists this season in what has been a turbulent few months for the French winger.

The 26-year-old forward was speaking ahead of PSG’s crucial Champions League tie against AC Milan this midweek, which is a must-win encounter for Luis Enrique’s men.

Mbappe trolls PSG teammate Dembele

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Dembele's difficulty in scoring goals has occasionally made him the target of trolling from fans on social media. However, his teammate Kylian Mbappe took this trolling to another level during a viral interview at an event.

Mbappe, known for his playful and lighthearted demeanour, continued in the same spirit by playfully teasing Dembele.

During an event organised by the OneSight foundation, which aims to provide eye tests for 1,000 underprivileged children, Mbappe humorously suggested that Dembele might need glasses to improve his scoring ability.
