Arsenal, Liverpool encouraged as Dembele learns he faces Barcelona exit

Ousmane Dembele fears he faces being squeezed out of Barcelona this summer.

Diario Gol says the France attacker's representatives have learned he could be sold if Barca are successful in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.

The forward is expected to leave Atletico this summer for Barcelona in a €100m deal - the price of his buyout clause.

Dembele could be the one to make way, with Barca needing a big sale to help balance the books. Indeed, it's suggested the decision has already been made inside the Barca boardroom.

A sale or even a loan departure will be settled for Dembele, who has attracted enquiries from Arsenal and Liverpool in the past month.

Arsenal chief scout Sven Mislintat signed Dembele for Borussia Dortmund less than two years ago. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, was beaten by Mislintat to Dembele's signing when he was still with Rennes.
