Dembele reveals Barcelona interest

Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele claims Spanish giants Barcelona have been in contact with him over a move to the Camp Nou.

Dembele's performances in the Bundesliga and for the France national team has seen his stock rise even further – after making a €15million switch from Rennes last season.

However, the 20-year-old claims the Blaugrana were interested in his services while he was still in Ligue 1 before he opted for a five-year deal with Dortmund.

"Last year I had contact with the Barcelona sports director," he told Mundo Deportivo. "But I'm good at Dortmund. I have a contract until 2021. I don't pay attention to what is said."

Dembele scored 10 goals and provided a further 21 assists in 49 games last term, helping BVB pick up the DFB-Pokal title.
