Barcelona will reportedly demand around €20 million to cash in on Ousmane Dembele, a target for Paris Saint-Germain.
According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, Ousmane Dembele could be on his way to Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window following Barcelona’s ouster from the UEFA Champions League. However, the French giants will need to shell out €20 million to secure the services of the 24-year-old forward.
Ousmane Dembele joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017, with fans and pundits viewing him as a possible long-term replacement for Neymar, who had joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the summer. However, a spate of injuries has blighted the Frenchman’s spell with Barcelona, curtailing his game-time considerably.
To date, the 24-year-old has made 123 appearances for Barcelona, amassing 30 goals and 21 assists in the process. However, the Catalan giants are in a precarious position over the long-term future of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, whose contract with the club is set to expire next summer. Such a situation has alerted several bigwigs of European football, including PSG.
