Ousmane Dembele arrived at Barcelona last summer but the Frenchman hasn’t lived up to the expectations of the Spanish giants because he has been labeled as “childish” yet they spent £93.4million to bring him to the Laliga. Dembele has made 11 appearances for Barcelona in the Spanish Laliga and has scored only four goals.
The 21-year-old is linked with many clubs but Arsenal is among the Premier League clubs that were interested in him even before he moved to Barcelona but is believed that the gunners are hopefully of getting him on a loan deal in January if it’s possible, but it seems it won’t be possible because a report by the Mirror claims that Barcelona has said that it will only let go of the French international if the interested clubs are ready to pay £89million.
It is a big amount which could totally make Arsenal end its interest in him but if they were to seriously try to sign him, it wouldn’t be in January but in the summer transfer window and since the budget of the North Londoners is always tight, he would be their only summer signing.
The report also said that Barcelona have told Ousmane Dembele to quickly start behaving well or else they will axe him from the club in the 2019 summer transfer window since he has shown that he is unruly and is always socializing with his friends.
