With the coronavirus pandemic in the summer window causing the absence of big-money transfers, swap and part-exchange transactions are likely to become normal as clubs are forced to reconsider their transfer strategies.
For instance, the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains a big concern for the Arsenal leadership, with the club captain’s deal due to expire next summer without any renewal in sight.
Meanwhile, since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund, Ousmane Dembele has struggled to hit the ground running at Barcelona-being limited to just five appearances in La Liga during a 2019-20 injury hit campaign.
These two sides are trying to find a viable solution for their players according to. As mentioned above, a straight-swap agreement is a plausible option.
Nevertheless, Barca is apparently not giving up in their search of Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez. Dembele is one of many first-team members that the Catalan giants will be willing to unload to collect the necessary funds for the striker.
So, Arsenal has competition from Inter for the player.
