Some of Europe’s biggest clubs have been linked with a potential hit for the star, including PSG and Chelsea.

The Blues were planning to pull out all the stops to sign the winger in the coming months but now they face serious competition from Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Sports, the German giants are very interested in signing Dembele and have already made contact with his representatives.

Julian Nagelsmann is eager to sign a new striker who has the ability to make a difference in attack.

And with the imminent departure of Robert Lewandowski, reinforcements will be crucial.

This weekend, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic revealed that the 33-year-old striker is keen to leave this summer.

He told Sky Germany: “I spoke with Lewa.

“During this discussion, he informed me that he did not want to accept our contract extension offer and that he would like to leave the club.

“He said he wanted to do something else. But our position hasn’t changed.

“The fact is he has a contract until June 30, 2023.”

With Bayern looking to prioritize Dembele as an attacking replacement, Barcelona are now scrambling desperately to offer him a new contract.

Club bosses want him to stay but they’ve also told him to lower his demands.

Dembele is currently the fourth most expensive player in the world.

Barca paid £135.5m to sign him from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 but he failed to live up to expectations.
