Arsenal monitoring Ousmane Dembele with PSG open to January offers

Arsenal are one of the clubs keeping tabs on Paris Saint-Germain forward Ousmane Dembele ahead of the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The France international only joined the Ligue 1 club from Barcelona during the summer transfer window, but he is yet to hit the ground running and could be allowed to leave temporarily when the next transfer window opens.

Arsenal are monitoring his situation but will face competition from Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United for the services of the 26-year-old striker.

Dembele joined PSG in a £50 million deal after a clause in his contract with Barca was activated, but is yet to score or assist in five games across all competitions.

The Frenchman bagged 40 goals and 43 assists in 185 games for the La Liga club and is one of the best players in the world on his day.

He can use both feet excellently well and is very versatile as they come, capable of playing on both wings, through the middle and as a number 9.

Dembele is also one of the fastest players on the planet and can be a quality addition to the Arsenal attack during the second half of the campaign.

He could struggle to force his way into the Gunners starting XI, but he has everything it takes to be an impact substitute and challenge Gabriel Martinelli and the strikers for their places in the line-up.

Snapping him up on a loan deal would make sense as both parties could decide to go their separate ways if nothing works out, and it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming months.

Dembele is the type of player capable of turning his fortune around in just a game, and PSG could opt against sending him out on loan if that happens.
