It has been reported this week that there are three premier league clubs currently monitoring PSG star Ousmane Dembele ahead of the January transfer window.
Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham are the three teams interested in signing the French international come the winter window.
Ousmane Dembele only recently signed for PSG during the summer transfer window for a fee of £50million. PSG hijacked the 26-year-old in a late transfer saga with Barcelona as they triggered a release clause in his contract however the showboating winger is yet to establish himself in Paris.
The underwhelming performances and time sitting on the bench has allowed the chances of rumours to begin filtering that an early exit could be on the cards. This however is unlikely from a PSG standpoint as manager Luis Enrique has spoken out in support of his new signing as he stated the following:
“If I were a supporter of a team, I would pay to see Ousmane Dembele He’s a totally different player. He is unpredictable, overflows and works magic.
“It’s true that he may have missed things and didn’t score his first goal but the day that happens I’m sure he’ll score a lot later. This happens to all attackers, its wonderful for a coach to have a player of his quality and level available.”
These comments made by Enrique clearly show he still has faith that Dembele will come good for the French outfit. The former Barcelona player has proven he can perform on the biggest stage with his undeniable talent and skill however the question over his fitness and injury track record is what has held him back in recent years, since leaving Borussia Dortmund.
There’s no doubt Dembele would significantly improve the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and West Ham as all three English clubs could do with more competition out wide. The 26-year-old has the ability to showcase himself on either the right or left wing and this could prove pivotal for the Gunners as he would offer a backup option to Bukayo Saka.
As of now Dembele seems to be focused on the task ahead at PSG while having the backing of his manager, however as the months play there could be a change come the January transfer window.
