Barcelona have a clear plan to extend the contract of French winger Ousmane Dembele. The 24-year-old was heavily admired by Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez, who was also pushing the club to extend Dembele’s contract.

Barca finally put an offer on the table for the French international to continue his stint with the Blaugrana a few weeks ago.

However, there has been no movement from Dembele’s side which has heavily annoyed the Barca hierarchy. As a result, Barca have declared that Dembele should find a suitor before Jan 31 as the club are willing to let him go in this January transfer window.

Don Hutchinson, who was speaking on the BBC 5 Live Football Daily podcast, claimed it would be a huge risk for Arsenal to sign Ousmane Dembele as they already have Pepe in their team who has a similar style of play.

He said: “If I was Liverpool I would (go for Dembele). If I was Arsenal I’m thinking I could get more out of Pepe, they’re two similar players. The trouble with Dembele is that he’s not been fit enough at Barca, he’s a wonderful talent, he certainly was at Dortmund.

“If Arsenal threw their money at Dembele I think it would be a risk, but if Liverpool did it he’d be a squad player who’d have to fight for his position.”
