Arsenal could land Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele for as little as £37m this summer, with Sport reporting that the La Liga club are ready to cut their losses.
Dembele has struggled to fulfil his potential since sealing a mega-money move to the Nou Camp from Dortmund.
A number of injuries and struggles in adapting to La Liga has seen the Frenchman falter in Spain. Despite this, the likes of Arsenal are apparently keen on signing the youngster this summer if he is available.
And latest reports seem to indicate that the Gunners have a big chance of landing the forward. Sport claims that Barca may now be willing to sell Dembele for as little as 43 million euros. That equates to around £37m, meaning the Spanish giants would be looking at a near £100m loss on the 22-year-old.
Arsenal, meanwhile, may be quietly confident of landing Dembele for that price. Despite the market this summer being expected to dip, the Gunners may well see the Frenchman as worth the money.

Arsenal could be the ideal place for Dembele to land given they stand to lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.
Despite his struggles in Barcelona, there’s clearly a massive talent in there somewhere. Dortmund were reluctant to sell initially, while Lionel Messi has previously branded Dembele a ‘phenomenon’.
Barcelona are desperately trying to raise funds to land Lautaro Martinez. A cheap sale, then, could well be on the cards, much to the benefit of Mikel Arteta and his team.
