Barcelona are reportedly willing to listen to any loan offers for Ousmane Dembele as they bid to get the winger off their wage bill.

Barcelona are reportedly open to allowing Ousmane Dembele to leave on loan during the next transfer window.

Given their financial outlay on the winger in 2017, Barca still prefer to cash in on the 23-year-old, who has struggled during his time at Camp Nou.

However, the implications of the coronavirus pandemic means that no clubs will be willing to pay anywhere near to the €105m fee which the Catalan giants paid Borussia Dortmund three years ago.

According to the Daily Mail, club officials are now happy to part ways with the France international on a temporary basis in a bid to lower their wage bill.

Reports in Spain also indicate that Juventus may hold an interest in Dembele, a suggestion which would play into Barca's favour as they look to sign Miralem Pjanic.

Manchester United and Arsenal are both said to be monitoring the situation.
