We understand that a deal to bring Ousmane Dembele to the Camp Nou will be completed on Wednesday.
The Dortmund player who has been rumoured with a move to Barcelona all summer has apparently agreed terms with the Catalan giants but Dortmund are yet to officially accept a bid.
With terms agreed it is expected the deal will complete very quickly once the offer is accepted by the German club.
The deal is currently worth a total of €130m with €100m upfront and the remaining €30 being earned through performance related bonuses.
With Barcelona also said to be chasing Coutinho we understand that the signing of Dembele will end their interest in the Liverpool attacker as they move to put their focus on a deal for Mbappe at Monaco, who they believe they can sign for a lower up-front cost due to Liverpool refusing to accept their offers to date.
This signing will be welcomed by Liverpool fans who will become more confident that they will keep hold of one of their prize assets.
Dortmund have been frustrated by the whole process and the attitude of their player and now want to put an end to the speculation by allowing the player to leave the club quickly so they can begin to replace him in the squad.
Barcelona fans, are you happy with the signing of Dembele? Liverpool fans, do you feel more confident of keeping Coutinho now?
