The France attacker, Ousmane Dembele has been linked with an exit from Camp Nou this summer, but his representative insists that he isn’t going anywhere despite receiving offers from other European clubs.

“I wanted to clarify firmly and definitively the situation of Ousmane Dembele,” Sissoko told L’Equipe.

“He has not planned on leaving FC Barcelona even for a moment. This is the course of action set for several months now and no element is or will be likely to make us deviate from it.

“Ousmane feels perfectly well within the club and he remains determined to impose himself in the long term.  Despite the offers of several big European clubs, Ousmane is convinced he wants to be part of the biggest of them and that everything is set for him to flourish.  Unfortunately, his injury has temporarily stopped him during his drive to have a great and beautiful season. But this will not affect his success and his will to return as soon as possible.”

Dembele was ruled out for up to five weeks with a hamstring strain suffered against Athletic last week.

He is also linked with a move to PSG in the off-season as part of a deal that would see Neymar return to Barcelona.
