Wednesday's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup: Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho, Max Aarons

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Barcelona on Wednesday, September 23.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Barcelona eye possible reinforcements.

The Spanish champions spent big on Antoine Griezmann last summer but missed out on a big-name striker in January and have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that selling players rather than buying could be their priority this summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer news from the Camp Nou.

Wednesday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'rule out move for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele'

Manchester United will be making no attempt to sign Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele during the transfer window, according to a report.

With a move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho seemingly dead in the water, United have been forced to seek out alternatives to the 20-year-old.

Dembele has been mentioned as a potential signing for the Red Devils, with the France international being tipped to leave Barcelona after struggling with injuries and failing to make his mark in La Liga.

However, the Catalan giants are set to wave goodbye to Luis Suarez, and as a result The Mirror claims that Barca will rebuff any attempts to prise Dembele away from Camp Nou.

The report claims that Ronald Koeman was initially open to selling the £100m-rated Frenchman in order to raise funds for future transfers, but it seems unlikely that any club would be willing to fork out such a sizeable figure in the current economic climate.

Dembele has amassed 19 goals from 74 appearances for La Blaugrana since arriving from Borussia Dortmund, but the 23-year-old only turned out nine times across all competitions in an injury-plagued 2019-20 campaign.

Dembele is contracted to Barcelona until the summer of 2022.

Barcelona 'have five-year agreement for Norwich City's Max Aarons'

Barcelona have reportedly agreed a five-year deal with Norwich City defender Max Aarons.

Following Norwich's relegation from the Premier League in the most recent campaign, the highly-rated defender has inevitably been linked with moves elsewhere.

Barcelona are supposedly in the market for a new right-back - with Nelson Semedo seemingly inching closer towards a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers - and Aarons is said to fit the bill in terms of what the Catalan giants are looking for.

According to Sport, Barca have a five-year contract in place for the 20-year-old and are hoping to get a deal over the line after conceding defeat to Bayern Munich in the race for Sergino Dest.

The report claims that Ronald Koeman's side have already seen an offer of a short-term deal rejected, but Norwich would be happy to accept a loan deal so long as it includes an obligation to buy next summer.

The Canaries supposedly want £20m for the England Under-21 international, while Bayer Leverkusen are also believed to be keeping a close eye on the situation.
