Lionel Messi will not stop Ousmane Dembele from leaving the Camp Nou as Arsenal prepare offer for the French winger.

Dembele arrived at the Camp Nou from Borrussia Dortmund last summer but has struggled with injuries as well as poor form.

Reports claim the winger who has made just three starts for Barcelona in all competitions this season doesn’t have a good relationship with many of his teammates.

Dembele feels his teammates are making him a scape goats and have accused a number of them, as a result Messi would be happy to see him leave.

According to Don Balon via the Express, Arsenal are interested in the winger and are lining up a summer bid.

Gunners new boy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is keen on a reunion with Dembele and has urged Wenger to make a move for the winger.

It is claimed that Wenger sees Dembele as the next Thierry Henry and as a result, the club is willing to strike an agreement with the La Liga giants.

However, Arsenal are believed to set for a first disappointment as Barcelona are prepared to reject the club’s £53m bid.

Should Arsenal decide to step up its interest then Messi won’t have any issue whatsoever with the move.
