Arsenal target Ousmane Dembele will cost £362m to sign as Barcelona demand full release clause
ARSENAL will need to stump up a staggering £362million if they are to land Barcelona superstar Ousmane Dembele, according to reports.
The French wonderkid showed his potential on the biggest stage of all by scoring a remarkable individual effort in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham last night.
It left Gunners supporters demanding that the club forked out to land the troubled 21-year-old whatever the cost.
Dembele has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp with Barca chiefs losing patience with his attitude off the field.
On Monday he was punished with a hefty £90,000 fine for turning up two hours late for training.
And it is not for the first time either.
Ousmane Dembele lives near an infamous sex club, but the Barcelona star shuns the party lifestyle to play PlayStation instead
IT’S NOT exactly sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.
Barca’s Ousmane Dembele and a handful of pals like to sit up all night playing video games or binge-watch Netflix series such as Narcos while swallowing fast food and fizzy drinks.
The old school high life of hashish and hookers, curries and cocaine – or even just cigarettes and alcohol – lived by many a football bad boy down the ages is not the the 21-year-old Frenchman’s style.

But any hopes that Arsenal fans had of signing the youngster appear out the window after learning of his price-tag.
Reports in Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona will not entertain any offers and will only let him speak to other clubs if they match his £362m release clause.
Dembele, who lives near an infamous sex club as revealed by SunSport, joined the Nou Camp in a deal that could rise to £135.6million in the summer.
Barca know his potential could lead him to becoming one of the world’s best so they are happy to remain patient with his off-field issues as he continues his development.
