In France, Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as clear favorites to sign former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who is also attracting interest from Newcastle United. In England, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed a deal for Monaco star Thomas Lemar is “dead”. Here are full details of these transfer headlines:

Ousmane Dembele set to join Barcelona

According to Express, Barcelona has finally signed Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele for $141 million, making him the second most expensive player in the world.

The French forward was reportedly desperate to move to Barca after learning of their interest, and even skipped Dortmund training which resulted in him being suspended and compelled to train on his own. He now looks set to join Barca this summer after agreeing to a deal with the Catalan giants. Ousmane Dembele only joined Dortmund from Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais for $16million last year summer. Dembele was one of the targets, along with Liverpool's Phillipe Coutinho, Barcelona had “identified” as an ideal replacement for Neymar Jr following his world-record transfer to PSG early this month.

PSG keen on landing Pepe Reina

Paris Saint Germain looks favorite to land Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina, amid interest from Newcastle United.

According to 90min, the French giants are ready to table an $8.3million offer for the Keeper. But, Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has remained confident of keeping hold of Reina, even though the Spaniard is now in the final year of his current deal. However, Pepe Reina may be tempted by the idea of a move to Paris to link-up with Neymar Jr and company.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been keen to extend his contract at Napoli but has not been able to agree to personal terms with the Italian club, “sparking” claims that he may leave the club this summer.

Wenger rules out chances of signing Thomas Lemar

According to Telegraph, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has revealed a deal for Monaco's Thomas Lemar is no longer anticipated.

When asked about a potential deal for Thomas Lemar, Wenger said: “It is dead because Monaco has closed the door. They're still on cases like Fabinho and Kylian Mbappe. They have already sold Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Mendy, so Monaco is at a stage where they've closed the door.” Arsene Wenger had been hopeful of signing Thomas Lemar before the summer transfer window closes as they look to strengthen their attacking options, but he now concedes it wouldn't be happening this time.
