Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembélé (26) is edging ever closer to sealing a €50m move to Paris Saint-Germain. RMC Sport report this Wednesday that the former Stade Rennais youth product is expected to land in the French capital tonight. The 37-time France international will undergo his medical exams on Thursday before putting pen to paper over a five-year deal with Les Parisiens.
PSG triggered the €50m release clause in Dembélé’s contract with the Blaugranas last week, before the clause expired on July 31st. This gave the Ligue 1 champions some time to engage in talks with Barcelona over payment instalment terms. Despite Barça’s efforts to move the player to Saudi Arabia to save themselves from the perceived embarrassment of strengthening a potential Champions’ League rival in this way, PSG have gotten this over the line. Paris Saint-Germain have stepped up their efforts to bolster their attacking options recently – considering Kylian Mbappé’s future remains very much up in the air. PSG have sealed the arrival of Benfica striker Gonçalo Ramos on Sunday whilst Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani is also of interest for Les Parisiens.
