Ousmane Dembele ‘told to find new club’ as Premier League trio circle

Ousmane Dembele has put Premier League trio Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea on red alert after reportedly being told to find a new club by Barcelona.

Winger Dembele’s Barca future was put in doubt last week after he was left on the bench in their Champions League clash with Inter Milan.

Reports at the time said that the France World Cup winner had been dumped despite Lionel Messi’s injury because he turned up to a team meeting 25 minutes late.

And less than a week later, RAC1 are reporting that the 21-year-old has been told to find a new club in January once the transfer window reopens.

Dembele joined Barca two summers ago for £105million from Borussia Dortmund – but a pair of injuries have blocked his progress in Spain.

But despite his woes in La Liga, Dembele will have no shortage of suitors – especially from the Premier League.

Chelsea will be hoping fellow France forward Olivier Giroud will be able to help them win the race, although Arsenal will call on Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, who starred with Dembele in Germany, to lay the ground work for a move.

Dembele’s desire to play regular Champions League football will only be quenched at Liverpool out of the three clubs – although he would have to be patient with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane currently starring in the wide roles at Anfield.
