It is claimed that Arsenal have made a formal move to sign Ousmane Dembele, who joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund two years ago.
“The only approach from Arsenal was to get him on loan, with an option to buy,” Guillem Balague stated. “That was an intermediate, not directly from Arsenal.
“And again, Barcelona did not listen to it. Barcelona don’t want to let him go in January either. They believe that they can get something out of him. They think he has the potential to make a difference like he did at the start of the season.”
It could be a stunning move as Arsenal appear to be hedging their bets over the France international and suggesting an initial loan to assess the winger close at hand.
Barcelona star is 21 years old, talented, blistering quick, and capable of destroying defences. The Frenchman also said to be a handful for his managers and this has tested the patience of the Catalan giants after they paid an astonishing £135 million for him last year.
The Gunners certainly will not pay anywhere near that, although the wide attacker looked in fine fettle at the start of this campaign and has recorded six goals from 15 matches this season.
