Ousmane Dembele has ruled denied any chance of him moving from Barcelona this month, ending Arsenal’s hopes of adding him to their exciting forward line.
The former Borussia Dortmund winger joined the Catalan giants in a monster deal worth a potential £135 Million after add-ons a year ago, but missed most of last season with injury, and struggled to regain fitness.
Ousmane has since found his place in the team come into question, with the exciting and highly rated Malcolm coming in to challenge for a place in the first-team, but Dembele remains happy with his place in the team.
“I’m staying at Barca, I’m ready to play the Super Cup,” he said.
Arsenal had been linked with the winger’s potential arrival for most of the summer, with permanent and loan deals both being mooted, but the latest reports had insisted that we would have had to pay a massive £10 Million to bring him to the Emirates this summer ON LOAN, with a possible inclusion of a £90 Million option to buy at the end of the campaign.
Unfortunately for our club this looks like it will end any talk of us bringing in further additions this window unless Unai Emery has other targets for the winged attacking roles, while there could still be a small possibility that Ramsey could forge an exit and would need replacing.
Would Ousmane have gave us another level in attack? Do we still need a winger today?
