REVEALED: Barcelona kept late Arsenal mega offer from Dembele

Barcelona refused to inform Ousmane Dembele of Arsenal's mega offer for him this week.

Arsenal wanted Barcelona forward Dembele to be their sixth summer signing but, despite their interest, ultimately missed out on luring him to the Premier League.

RAC1 says Arsenal DID try and lure Dembele to north London as the clock ticked down.

Arsenal offered £9million to loan the player for a year, with an extra £80m to come in a year's time.

But Barcelona, of the belief Dembele would have no interest in the switch, decided to not even inform the player.

PSG also admire the 21-year-old but appear to be focusing their efforts on Jerome Boateng for the time being.
