- In latest Ousmane Dembele Transfer News, Barcelona are willing to let the player leave if they receive an appropriate offer
- French champions PSG have been linked with making a move for Dembele
Despite a recent public admission of being happy with his current situation at Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele continues to make headlines in recent Barcelona Transfer News columns across Spain. The 21-year-old forward has been attracting plenty of interest from Paris Saint-Germain over the past week and has also been in touch with Arsenal.
Barcelona, on their part, have maintained pin drop silence on the issue but leading Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo has revealed that the club would welcome an offer if it allows them to recover the fees paid to secure Dembele’s services from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Dembele not an ‘untouchable’ at Barcelona
Reliable Barcelona sources also indicate that Dembele’s position at the club is not untouchable and the club will not stand in his way of leaving if a suitable offer arrives in the coming days. The fact that the French international is unlikely to get too much playing time under Ernesto Valverde, which might further go down if new recruit Malcom takes his chances.
On paper, Dembele’s release clause is €400 million but Barcelona have made it known to the player’s representatives that a bid of €100 million would be enough for him to leave the club without any hiccups. Until the end of August, the La Liga transfer market remains open and there are three weeks where Dembele is likely to stay in news.
Tuchel wants a Dembele reunion at PSG
To elaborate on this Ousmane Dembele Transfer News, it is the new PSG boss Thomas Tuchel who gave him the required confidence at Dortmund. The two forged a great working relationship and the German tactician now wants a reunion in the French capital. Dembele’s friendship with compatriot Kylian Mbappe can also be used a potential sell-on factor. Further, PSG might also be looking to cover for the future loss of superstar Neymar which seems inevitable over the next year or so.
Dembele is also feeling a bit insecure with Malcom’s arrival and with the knowledge that Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho are untouchables for Valverde. If the 21-year-old comes to the conclusion that he is unlikely to play regularly, he will seek an express transfer and do everything possible to make the deal happen.
Staying on the bench and playing irregularly could be fatal for his development as a player and Dembele knows that. For Barcelona, a transfer fee in the region of €100 million will be great from the economic point of view and help them to balance their books.
