Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has told Arsenal that they do not plan to sell Samuel Umtiti this summer.

Unai Emery has also made it clear that he would be interested in a deal for Umtiti by claiming that the 25-year-old is a 'very good player' in an interview with French television earlier this month.



Bartomeu is adamant that Barca are planning to keep Umtiti.



'He renewed him before the World Cup, he has four years left on his contract and there is no Umtiti issue,' Bartomeu told TVE. 'Now he has to recover from his injury as we want to have him in the best form possible.

'Having Umtiti and [Clement] Lenglet on the left is a guarantee and I would like him to continue.

Ousmane Dembele has also been previously linked with a move to Arsenal but Bartomeu now considers the 21-year-old better than Neymar.

'It's not possible for Neymar to come to Barcelona as we have another sporting project with Dembele and [Philippe] Coutinho,' said Bartomeu.
