Arsenal handed transfer boost after Barcelona ace allowed to leave for free

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their long-term pursuit of Ousmane Dembele as Barcelona appears to have given up on keeping the French attacker.

The Gunners hold a long-standing interest in his signature, and they have continued to be linked with a move for him.

Mikel Arteta’s side needs new forwards, and they have been working on some transfers.

They could now add Dembele to their squad as The Daily Mail reports that Barcelona has informed the Frenchman they cannot offer him a bigger contract than the one currently on the table.

He became a free agent yesterday, and the Catalans attempted to get him to re-sign again, but it seems he will now find a new home.

This is now a boost to Arsenal, and they will look to lure him to London as a part of Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Dembele is one of the most talented attackers in the world and he is still only 25.

His time at Barca has been injury-prone, but he played over 30 matches for them last season and did well in most.

He is probably now in his best physical shape, and he can do a job if he moves to the Emirates.

Arteta will have to decide whether he wants the former Borussia Dortmund man. If he does, then we should compete to sign him.

  1. Let us not hope that this is another false hope. Arsenal need another striker am
    Nd a defender

  2. Well there is no transfer fee but a big wage for probably a four year contract. There’s no doubt he is a player, but would he unsettle the applecart? On his day he causes havoc in defences……

  3. Another big wage problem child, hasn’t he had discipline issues as well? Weren’t there reports about that from Dortmund and Barca?

    Then again, we do love to hand out excessive wages far too easily.

  4. He has a 2 year deal on the table from Barca plus Frakie De Jong not for sale to Utd. Don’t see either leaving.

  5. The earlier suggestion was that Barcelona would wait to see what happens with Dembele before deciding whether they should pursue Raphinha.

    With his wages off the boks, they’re presumably in a better financial position to make a bid. Chelsea’d better watch out.

    Gakpo would be the better bet to my mind, but Leeds seem to be quite advanced towards bringing him in rapidly when Raph leaves so it may be too late for that (unless of course this is already happening behind the scenes and we just don’t hear about it).

  6. fans just want money to be spent and new faces

    After signing Dembele, the fans would want another big name and club player to replace the injury prone Dembele

  7. Even after signing Ausman if at all they will am sure you will still have some reason to criticize Arsenal. Crying 🍼

  8. I see you’re the glass half empty kinda guy, picked out the not so good buys which can be proved wrong later then say they are clueless, what a shame. May the force be with you…

      1. To be fair Jesus is a massive upgrade on Laca and nketia and he is a tidy player. It’s CM/DM that we need to really strengthen

      2. All of us have watched how Jesus plays. It doesn’t take rocket science to identify his abilities and potentials.

  9. Any new signing should just be quality. Otherwise it makes no sense.ramwhile we need to offload some deadwood littering emirates. Due respect to them though.

  10. We don’t really need him. Do we? Good supper player for sure but let us stick to Jesus and build up Nketia and Fola.
    Please, get us Martinez and Teilemans and close the chapter

  11. The article , as ever , does its best to try to make the dreamers among us BELIEVE it will or may happen.

    We who refuse to waste time dreaming, know it plainly will not do so!

  12. Please avoid signing players that are most of the time in injury and players that always face problems with other teammates. I actually already satisfy with the signing of Gabriel and we needs also fill in the Academy potential youngsters into Main squad from time to time since we do have potential star in making. Let not have another potential like Gnabry been snapped by other Club
