Barcelona mulling over record-breaking move for Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele

BARCELONA will make another tilt at landing Borussia Dortmund star Ousmane Dembele.

But the Spanish giants will have to shell out a Bundesliga transfer record fee if they are serious about the attacker.

Kevin De Bruyne’s £55million move to Manchester City  in 2015 is the current marker, and Barca according to Bild will have to go north of that sum to land Dembele.

The winger who gave the England defence the runaround in Paris last week is reported to be unhappy with the departure of Thomas Tuchel, the man who signed him from Rennes last summer.

The Catalan giants are prepared to offer the French international an escape route out of Germany after failing to convince him to make the move last year.

The youngster opted to join the Bundesliga giants, sensibly fearing he would not get a game ahead of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

An impressive debut season for Dortmund and Tuchel’s exit has given Barca a chance to exploit the turmoil around the club and land the winger for new boss Ernesto Valvedere.

There are five players named Dembele in European football at the moment, but who is the best?

The French international who has a contract until 2021 scored 10 goals in 49 appearances as Dortmund who finished third in the Bundesliga last season.

But the players agent Moussa Sissoko has not confirmed Barca’s interest, but admitted some of Europe’s elite are monitoring his client.

Sissoko said: “Ousmane is on holiday. I can’t comment on all the information that appears about his future.

“We do know there are a number of big clubs interested in him, which is a form of recognition for his good performances.”
