Barcelona will consider offers in excess of €100m (£88m) for forward Ousmane Dembele in the January transfer window, according to Don Balon.

The Spanish rumour mongers report that the Frenchman’s omission from the starting line up against Tottenham on Wednesday night could prompt Barca into selling the winger.

Dembele has been heavily linked with Arsenal for a number of months, but it seems that if the Gunners are interested in the 21-year-old, they will face some competition.

Don Balon believe that Paris Saint-Germain are keen on the France international, with manager Thomas Tuchel looking to link up the pacey forward with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Dembele certainly hasn’t had a poor start to the season by any means. In fact, he has started all seven of Barcelona’s league fixtures and has already scored five goals in just nine games in all competitions.

This story from the notoriously unreliable Don Balon should, therefore, be taken with a large pinch of salt.
