8pm Arsenal news LIVE: Dembele £37m transfer, Aubameyang LATEST, Tagliafico open to Gunners move


Arsenal have received renewed hope in their attempts to sign Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.

According to Sport, Barca are willing to sell the former Dortmund winger for just £37m.

That represents a huge loss on the fee of £94m + £36m in add-ons that the Catalans paid for him in summer 2017.

Barcelona are keen to get Dembele’s £200,000-a-week wages off their books due to the coronavirus crisis and will reportedly listen to offers for any of their players except Lionel Messi, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Frenkie de Jong.

Meanwhile SunSport revealed that Nicolas Tagliafico is open to a transfer to the Emirates and is valued at £20m by Ajax.

Should the Argentine join, he would be expected to start at left-back with Bukayo Saka pushed further up the pitch.

And captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been pictured back in training with the rest of the Arsenal squad as the Premier League’s restart draws closer.

The squad were back under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta who has recovered from coronavirus after his positive test was the trigger for the season being suspended in March.
