Ousmane Dembele’s agent says the forward has not even thought about leaving Barcelona.
The France forward has endured a frustrating time in Spain since a €120m move from Borussia Dortmund and sections of the Spanish press have claimed Barca will consider his sale should a suitable offer come in, with €100m (£89.7m) likely to be enough to persuade them to sell.
Liverpool have been the club most associated with a move for the 22-year-old, bit with Jurgen Klopp recently admitting Philippe Coutinho proved to expensive for the Reds, it’s unlikely they would be in a position to snare Dembele.
And now his agent Moussa Sissoko says the player has had no thoughts of leaving despite claiming”several big European clubs” have made approaches for the attacker.
“I wanted to clarify firmly and definitively the situation of Ousmane Dembele,” Sissoko told L’Equipe .
“He has not planned on leaving FC Barcelona even for a moment. This is the course of action set for several months now and no element is or will be likely to make us deviate from it.
“Ousmane feels perfectly well within the club and he remains determined to impose himself in the long term.
“Despite the offers of several big European clubs, Ousmane is convinced he wants to be part of the biggest of them and that everything is set for him to flourish.
“Unfortunately, his injury has temporarily stopped him during his drive to have a great and beautiful season. But this will not affect his success and his will to return as soon as possible.
“He is Barcelona and he will stay 1000 per cent with the will to honour the colours of the club!”
