  • Pires believes Lemar and Dembele have the right profile to play for Arsenal
  • Mbappe and Lacazette are also on his “list”
  • He rates Lemar highly

Pires was a part of the launch of Arsenal’s home kit for next season and took the time to talk about who he thinks Arsenal should sign this summer.

“Who is at the top of the list? I have [Kylian] Mbappe. I have [Alexandre] Lacazette. I have [Ousmane] Dembele. I have Neymar,” he said.

Any one of those players would certainly strengthen Arsenal, although how attainable they are is another matter entirely.

Pires reserved special praise for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.

“He can play on the left, on the right, he has a very good ability with the ball. Very good assists. Very good crosses. He can make a success in the Premier League, especially if he signed for Arsenal.”

Of all the targets, Pires recommended Lemar and Dembele the most as he believes they have the attributes to play for Arsenal.

“I don’t know what’s happening for Thomas Lemar for next season but I repeat, Lemar or [Ousmane] Dembele. They both have a very good profile to play for Arsenal and work every morning with Wenger.”

Arsenal will be looking for a new forward to spearhead their attack, and could also be looking at wingers to add depth to that area.

Lemar has been frequently linked with Arsenal, while Dembele has been linked with Barcelona.
