The end might be close for French forward Ousmane Dembele as reports claim that he will be leaving the Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona in the January transfer window.

Ousmane Dembele was linked with a number of teams in the just concluded summer transfer window but he refused to leave, insisting on staying with the Catalans.

English Premier League title holders Liverpool had made a move for Ousmane Dembele but he rejected it while Man United’s effort until the transfer deadline day failed.

Barcelona were reported to be unhappy with the player for refusing to leave as he might not find playing time under new manager Ronald Koeman, having enjoyed just 20 minutes under his reign.

However, the Spanish giants are willing to let him leave in the winter transfer window for a fee as low as £45 million but should he refuse, there will be talks of a new deal for him.

It is understood that Ousmane Dembele might have had a change in heart to reconsider his decision to stay at Camp Nou for a move away in the January winter transfer window.

What is unknown is whether Liverpool or Man United will be making a move for him again or not.
