According to Spanish news outlet RAC1 via the Express, Barcelona have reportedly put the French winger up for sale which has alerted the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. He’s a talented player but Arsenal should be looking elsewhere for their winger.
Dembele was left on the bench for the club’s recent Champions League match against Inter Milan and has so far not lived up to the hype since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund last year.
The former Borussia Dortmund man scored three goals to go along with seven assists in 17 games for Barcelona in the league and has so far only scored three in 10 this season.
Valued at £72 million, there’s no doubt that Dembele has incredible talent but with Arsenal’s budget and Emery’s system, Dembele just doesn’t fit.
Dembele thrives in a system where he’s allowed to have a free roam and at Arsenal under Emery, he just wouldn’t be given that.
Moreover, in defence, Emery wants his players to come back and help out at the back, that’s something that Dembele won’t do.
