Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Barcelona as to the availability of winger Ousmane Dembele.

The 21-year-old was limited to just 12 starts in the league for Barca this season, following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

With first-team football hard to come by in a team featuring the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Philippe Coutinho, the bosses at the Camp Nou may see fit to allow the prospect to spend some time on loan in one of Europe’s top divisions to gain valuable experience.

 Liverpool had been thought to be prime candidates to take the injury-affected phenom on loan for the 2018/19 season, but Sport report that Arsenal too are hoping to enter the stakes.

Sven Mislintat, head scout at Arsenal, has supposedly been in contact with both Barcelona and Dembele himself.

With new manager Unai Emery at the helm, the Gunners are keen to add some fresh blood to their attacking options over the summer, as they look to complement Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
