Borussia Dortmund attacker Ousmane Dembele has captured the interest of Spanish rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona this summer.
The young Frenchman’s stellar performances last season has made him one of the top prospects in Europe, and at just 20-years-old, he’s bound to get even better.
Madrid are in the market for a new attacker these days, having sold prolific super-sub Alvaro Morata to Chelsea a few weeks ago. Barcelona, meanwhile, are still reeling from the loss of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Catalan side are thought to have set their sights on Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, as well as Dembele. But the French star seems like he’s being rated a bit higher.
Dortmund have no intention to sell their player, with CEO
