Barca star rules out shock summer switch to Arsenal


Ousmane Dembele has shot down rumours linking him with a shock move to Arsenal and says he will not be leaving Barcelona this summer.

The winger joined Barca from Borussia Dortmund for a fee in the region of £135million last summer, but the Frenchman has struggled to be a success at the Nou Camp.

A serious hamstring injury has not helped matters and there have been reports suggesting he could leave Barca in the summer, with Arsenal mentioned as a possible destination.

Whether Arsenal would be able to finance such a deal remains to be seen, but either way, Dembele has ruled it out and says he has no intention of leaving Barcelona so soon after arriving.

‘I’m not going to leave after just one season,’ he has been quoted as saying. ‘I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona. I’ll be here for a long time.’
