Manchester United, Arsenal interested in Barcelona attacker?


Ousmane Dembele news

Dembele heading to the Premier League?

Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a summer bids for Ousmane Dembele despite the winger's injury concerns at Barcelona.

The Frenchman joined the Blaugrana from Borussia Dortmund for an initial £95m in 2017 and he has since been restricted to only 74 appearances, having struggled numerous hamstring problems.

He is currently out with another long-term injury until August at the least but United are Arsenal are still said to hold an interest in acquiring his services from the Blaugrana.

According to Sport, the Catalan giants need to recoup funds to sanction deals for Lautaro Martinez and Neymar this summer and a number of players could head through the exit door.

It is added that Dembele could be made available in the transfer market for a knockdown price of £43m, which may attract interest from the Red Devils and Gunners.

Despite his regular injury setbacks, Dembele has fared impressively for the Spanish champions with 19 goals and 17 assists from 74 games in all competitions.
