Suggestions are that the bid by the North London side Arsenal for Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele will only hit the dead rock at the end of the day as the likelihood of a deal to fall through is low.
The Gunners have been linked with the French striker for a couple of weeks with reports that a bid could be submitted ahead of January when the winter transfer window eventually reopens.
Earlier reports are that Ousmane Dembele was unhappy at the Camp Nou and was seeking a move away but the speculation has been laid to rest by his agent who noted that his client is happy at the club and will not be seeking a move away from the club.
More so, it has been revealed that the North London side will have to stump up a stunning £362 million to secure his service which is unrealistic for the Arsenal side to venture into.
Suggestions are that the whopping £362 million release clause was placed on the player to scare suitors away which clearly reveal that the Spanish giants are not interested in letting him go.
Arsenal have got Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette firing but they are hopeful to add more options ahead of the second half of the season.
