Liverpool fans will be delighted with the news going on in the media that Barcelona have agreed terms of contract with Dortmund star Ousmane Dembele. This might be a sign that the La Liga side will not pursue Coutinho.
After selling Neymar to PSG, the Catalan giants have acted swiftly and agreed personal terms with the French international. Now, they are looking to agree a fee with the Bundesliga side and that could be around €100million (L’Equipe).
The above mentioned fee is ridiculously high and will make Dortmund earn a huge profit because he only joined last summer for a fee of €15million (ESPN).
As per the provided L’Equipe link, Barcelona want to close the deal as quickly as possible. Dembele can effectively play on either flank. He mainly played as a right winger last season but at Barca, Messi is the main right winger. So, we can expect the 20-year-old star to directly replace Neymar and start on the left flank for Barca.
This season, he has already played one game for Dortmund in the DFL Super Cup and provided an assist against Bayern. The German champions eventually won the contest on penalties.
Last season, he scored 10 goals and provided 21 assists for BvB in 49 games. In your opinion, is Dembele good enough to replace Neymar?
