Juventus move for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele

Juventus have made a move for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

Mundo Deportivo says Juventus have already opened talks with Barca over signing Dembele on loan during discussions over his team-mate Arthur.

Juventus are looking for more attacking options on the flank in the wake of Juan Cuadrado's advancing years and Federico Bernardeschi falling out of favour under Maurizio Sarri.

However, Juve are also wary of Dembele's poor injury record while at the Nou Camp and only want to agree a loan deal before committing to any permanent transfer.

While Barca will be happy to offload Dembele, they will be hoping to ensure the move is worked with a mandatory purchase clause, especially if they still have to pay his wages.
