Barcelona ahead of Man Utd and Arsenal in race for Rennes wonderkid

Barcelona are reportedly leading the race to sign Rennes starlet Ousmane Dembele this summer.

The Mirror reports that Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez and scout Urbano Ortega watched the 18-year-old in action against Nantes last week.

The highly-rated youngster scored a hat-trick in the clash with Nantes.

Barcelona lead the race, but face competition from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Southampton.
