Newcastle United are in talks with Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.
According to The Sun, Newcastle have already held talks with Dembele’s representatives ahead of a lucrative move to St. James’ Park this summer.
The 24-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer with little progress made at the Nou Camp in relation to contract renewal.
Dembele signed for Barcelona for a reported fee of €100million in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund but will be free to enter a pre-contract agreement in January.
Xavi’s impending arrival could spell the end for Newcastle’s pursuit of the winger, however, given recent contract discussions, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
