Arsenal are closing in on Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, according to reports inThe Sun.

The club's summer spending looks close to being over - but the arrival of Dembele would provide a boost to Unai Emery, although The Sun reports the Catalan club want to take Aaron Ramsey as part of an exchange deal for the 21-year-old France international.

Ramsey was linked to Chelsea earlier this week and although Emery has said he wants to keep the Wales international at Arsenal, the Gunners are relatively blessed in central midfield, including Matteo Guendouzi, who impressed during the club's Asian tour.

This rumour has been simmering in the background going from tepid to lukewarm since a few days before the World Cup Final was played.

What do I think?

Well Ousmane Dembélé is a mega talented player and of this there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever. But he has a myriad of issues ranging from being a lonsome character, unsociable to needing a person attached to him from the psychological part of the team to be consistently boosting his confidence. Add to this that when he gets into a strop he does ridiculous things like he did before he moved from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona where he decided to go awol.

Unai Emery amongst various attributes has one main detail about his coaching skills and this is that he’s big on harnessing mental strength from his players if they totally devote themselves to his vision.

Taking all of these things into account I’m not so sure.

Makes sense that Tony isn't too upset by this news as his left-testicle is Arsenal coloured.

If you look at the history of the player here I think Barcelona are getting the better deal. He has obviously not worked out for them and they are getting a player who, when he gets into stride, can cause some real damage with his passing and incisive play. Should Arsenal even be willing to take such a gamble? I'd say no. Does Ramsey even want a move?

  • The title was changed to Aaron Ramsey & Ousmane Dembele - Swap Deal?

So the news is deeper than just a possible move by Arsenal for Dembélé Who’s at Barcelona.

The apparent deal would include Aaron Ramsey moving the other way plus €115m. :o

No way we could ever afford that, that's a 160m euro deal. No way we have that sort of cash.

I’m hearing that if the Rabiot deal fails for Barça which should be made clear in the next couple of days, then Barcelona will probably go for Aaron Ramsey. This could be awkward for us so close the the start of the new season.

Is Ramsey meant to be a replacement for Paulinho? Probably an upgrade for Barca there, although I don't know if he'll have the same strikers instinct that Paulinho weirdly has as a defensive midfielder.

I actually think Ramsey would be really good in Paulinho’s role of linking play, then driving beyond the striker or arriving late to finish moves.

I wouldn't even want this to happen as a straight swap to be honest, let alone a Ramsey + a bucket load of money deal. Dembele is a talented footballer but nowhere near "one of the best" talented. He seems like a cunt as well with a massive ego even though he's not really done a lot and I don't think he'd be as important to the team as Ramsey is.

There are some very strong rumours coming out today that Arsenal are preparing to actually buy Ousmane Dembele for £89 Million, the deal will be £8.9 Million 1 year loan fee with a future fee of £80 million.

 

With Welbeck, Perez both going it does look like an attacking player will come in.

I've never bought into Ousmane Dembele. A terrible attitude and a panic buy after Neymar was snatched, I'd honestly get rid.

He's 21. There's plenty of time for him to mature, and he wasn't helped last season by being out for a few months with injury. 

He's a class act and has the ability to make it at Barca. Really cannot see them selling him or loaning him.

@SirBalon how reliable is the Catalan newspaper mundo deportivo

Like with all newspapers and especially football journalism where a decent proportion of the best selling news which is transfers can go various ways.  They get facts without the full story and try to join the missing dots by using intuition and rumourology. 

They're as reliable as most mate and depends on the story.

Why?

If he changes his attitude then I am happy with this. His injury hasn't helped, but he really needs to get his head down and put in a shift this season. 

If not, then Malcom will swallow his place.

I agree and it's become plainly obvious when analysing his season at Barcelona that practically everything negative about his football other than the injuries has been down to himself and his personality issues.

They reported about him staying at Barcelona, so just wanted to know if it was reliable.
