Barcelona ready to bring Dembele?
Borussia Dortmund is said to have set Lyon’s Maxwell Cornet as their main target to replace Ousmane Dembele, if he did join Barcelona, according to Kicker.
The reason, Dembele is said to have reached an agreement to join the Catalan team, and Dortmund is ready to recruit 20-year-old Lyon player, who can play on the wings and in the middle.
Cornet itself appeared quite impressive last season. He successfully made 10 goals in 51 games he played in all competitions.
Previously, Barcelona had claimed to spend more than 100 million euros to get Dembele. Dortmund knows that the young French players have great potential and demand high dowries for him.
Dembele departure signal is getting stronger, after previously he looks less enthusiastic when doing photo session with other members of Dortmund squad not long ago.
But Peter Bosz’s team made a breakthrough by releasing an official statement. BVB firmly mentioned that they will not release Dembele to Barcelona in the summer.
But it is unclear whether Barca would give up so easily with the Westfalen-based club’s attitude…….
