Ousmane Dembele’s future has been the subject of a few rumors this summer with some reports claiming Arsenal want to bring him to north London.

It always looked extremely unlikely Barcelona would be willing to part ways with the France international having only signed him for big money last season.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu has reportedly spoken privately to the player to tell him the club have no intention of selling him now.

Dembele has now been spotted talking about a move to the Gunners on a live stream on Twitch.

The Frenchman apparently laughed off talk of a move to Arsenal and also said: “Yes, I’m going to stay and I’m ready for the Super Cup of Spain against Sevilla.”

Dembele cut short his holidays early to return to Barcelona training on Saturday and hopefully can enjoy an injury-free season.
