Manchester United are reportedly in pole position to snatch France international striker Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona in the summer despite strong interest from Arsenal.

The youngster has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates stadium by many media outlets as they report that he would love to reunite with his former teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang whom he played alongside during their days at the Wesftaladion stadium.

The likes of Chelsea, Paris St-Germain, Bayer Munich are all looking at the prospect of signing the 20-year-old to their respective clubs in the summer but that might just fail as Manchester United manager, José Mourinho is reportedly leading the chase for his signature.

The Times earlier revealed earlier in the month at Anthony Martial could be sold to either Arsenal or Tottenham so as to create space for the young striker to come into his first-team.

Dembele has struggled to find his feet at Barcelona this season and according to Don Balon, he is ready to start a fresh career in the Premier League with United tipped as his next destination.

Having signed Dembele for £97m from Borussia Dortmund last summer, the Catalans are expected to sell him for a fee not less than £97m but it is unknown if Mourinho would want to pay such huge price on the Frenchman who seems to be out form after returning from his lengthy injury lay-off.
