Ernesto Valverde wants the striker to replace NeymarWhat's the story?

We'll also need to smash our transfer record to sign Dembele as the newspaper claims Dortmund are only ready to do business this summer if their £90m valuation is met.

In case you didn't know.


It is though that the player has a sore back and will not be risked for the game but Barcelona rumours continue to get louder.

The France global is one of the most highly rated young players in world football at the moment, and has been identified as Barca's top target to replace Neymar after his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Several of world football's biggest names are being linked with a move to the Blaugrana, with Eden Hazard, Paulo Dybala and Antoine Griezmann subject to rumoured links.

The Metro cite Bild as saying that Real Madrid are eyeing Dembele as an alternative to Kylian Mbappe while Barcelona are also showing a keen interest in signing the attacker after losing Neymar to PSG.

This past season, the 20-year-old emerged as one of the most exciting young prospects in the world as he bagged 10 goals and 21 assists in 49 appearances for Dortmund.

According to Marca, Dembele would fit seamlessly into Barca's set up as he has similar traits to Neymar.

Other reports also suggest that the club will target both Dembele and Philippe Coutinho this summer in what could be a mage double swoop. While Dybala may forge a better link with Messi, the Juventus striker is far too expensive.

"Last year, Paul Pogba already went (to Manchester United) for more than €100m (£89m) and, when new Messis and Ronaldos appear in the future, Neymar will not be a single case".
