Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is keeping tabs on wing wizard Ousmane Dembele this summer, according to reports in France.
The Frenchman only moved to Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund last summer as part of a deal that could eventually be worth £135.5million.
Injuries, however, hindered the 21-year-old’s first season in Spain and he is now considering his future.
And, according to L’Equipe, if Dembele does decide it is time to move on then Arsenal are ready to pounce.
Gunners chief Mislintat has reportedly been in constant touch with the French youngster to see if he would be tempted by a move to London.
Barcelona, for their part, still have faith that Dembele could come good but they may consider allowing him to leave on loan for a season.
