Barcelona are closing in on signing their Neymar replacement: Borussia Dortmund star Ousmane Dembele.
French source L’Equipe claim that Barcelona have agreed personal terms with the former Rennes standout for a summer transfer, but are yet to agree a fee with the Bundesliga side for his transfer.
Dembele has been a reported target for Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool this summer but it seems Barcelona are leading the race to sign him.
While no fee has been agreed between Barcelona and Dortmund, negotiations are expected to begin at around €100m for the French winger.
After arriving in Germany last summer for £12.75m from Rennes, Dembele enjoyed a great first season for Dortmund, scoring 10 goals and providing 21 assists. Dembele has started the season well for Dortmund, getting an assist in their DFL-Supercup clash with Bayern which they lost on penalties.
Barcelona will look to agree a fee for the attacker as they look to beat the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool to his signature.
