Barcelona looks favorite to land the Borussia Dortmund winger. After spending only a year at Dortmund, the 20 year old is almost set to leave since the dismissal of manager Thomas Tuchel.
Barcelona will have to pay a handsome fees, however, considering that they are facing immense competition from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
They’ll also have to prepare for the fact that Dortmund do not wish to sell Dembele at this point. Dortmund sporting director, Michael Zorc, has said the youngster will not be for sale.

Per Otway, he told German newspaper Waz: "Ousmane Dembele has a long-term contract [until 2021] and we are making definite plans with him. There are no negotiations. Ousmane is going to be playing for Dortmund in the coming season."
While the club is ready to hold on to their youngster, it will obviously be difficult considering that Dembele had a brilliant season last year when he scored 10 goals and assisted 21 times in the competition.
