Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele feels that he will stay at the club for a long time despite links with Arsenal, according to the Metro.

The French forward joined from Borussia Dortmund last summer for a mouthwatering £112 million, but has struggled to make his mark, with a season full of injuries.

He has played just 11 times for the club in the league in his debut season, with injury and form causing a lack of regular game time.

Dembele sees his long-term future at the club despite having a frustrating start to life in Spain.

Barcelona are set to walk to the La Liga title once again but are looking to bolster their squad after suffering a shock Champions League exit to Roma last week.

Dembele excelled at Dortmund but has found it tough to make much of an impact at Barcelona, despite scoring a crucial goal against Chelsea in the Champions League.

The youngster spoke about the situation:

I’m not going to leave after just one season.

I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona.

I’ll be here for a long time. I’m not at the top of my game right now. Little by little, I will return to my best.

 I’m working on my cardio, because I get tired very quickly.
