Ousmane Dembele ‘Just Hours’ From Joining Barcelona From Borussia Dortmund

Published on:

La Liga giants Barcelona are just few hours away from completing the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in France.

Ousmane Dembele is close to sealing a move to Barcelona

Barcelona are desperate to bolster the squad and are eyeing to land a big signing following Neymar’s £198million move to Ligue 1 giants PSG.

They had identified Philippe Coutinho as their No 1 target this summer but Reds have rejected three back-to-back bids from the Catalan giants and have made it clear that they will not sell their prized asset.

The Reds have turned down Barcelona’s £118million third bid for the Brazilian playmaker on Friday and now it is understood that the Catalan club have admitted defeat in their pursuit of the Liverpool star.

And moving forward, Barca are now set to rope in their other top target – Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund.

According to Get French Football News, Barcelona are on the verge of reaching an agreement with Dortmund over to sign Dembele.

The French youngster is keen to make a switch to the Nou Camp and has gone on strike at the club to force through his move to Spain.

Dembele is currently suspended by Dortmund after missing training

Dortmund suspended the forward for failing to report to training in pre-season and he is currently in France.

The German club slammed Barca officials and have been far from being impressed by their approach to rope in Dembele with general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke claiming the possibility of a deal going through is “under 50 per cent”.

But recent reports have claimed that Dembele is on the verge of joining Lionel Messi and Co. at the Nou Camp on a deal worth close to £110m.

Reports also suggest that Dembele is set to fly off to Barcelona to complete a medical and to complete his move in the near future.

All eyes on him

Dembele had only arrived at Dortmund in May 2016 from Ligue 1 side Rennes.

He displayed good form with 10 goals and 21 assists to his name in all competitions in his debut season at the Westfalenstadion.
