The French forward has struggled to live up to expectations at Barcelona, managing only 18 goals in 65 games since securing a mega money move to join the Camp Nou outfits from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

Liverpool are reportedly keen to land Dembele this summer but the huge fee of £90million tagged on the 22-year-old has been a major concern that may scare off a deal.

Dembele in no doubt is one of the finest youngsters in European football with huge potentials that would benefit Jurgen Klopp's Red men in their Premier League challenge next season.

However, Barcelona officials had reportedly been left incensed by Dembele’s behavioural problems last season, with the Frenchman consistently turning up late for training sessions.

Despite his poor attitude in recent months, it appears the La Liga champions are still willing to hand him a lifeline at the Nou Camp - as per Bartomeu recent comment which has ruled out a switch for the Liverpool target this summer.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday afternoon, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said: "Dembele is young, talented, different. 

"I consider him to be better than Neymar, he has a lot to grow and we want him to do it here.

Bartomeu also rubbishes speculations that Philippe Coutinho could be leaving the club after the Brazilian's turbulent debut season worries.

"Dembele and Coutinho are are a fundamental part of the squad for the coach," Bartomeu added.
