According to Sport, Barca were "surprised" by the valuation-they expected a demand closer to €100 million (£90 million)-and will make a first formal bid for the 20-year-old Frenchman lower than the requested €150 million "in a few days". A delegation from Barcelona travelled to Germany yesterday to continue negotiations.

Dembele has four years remaining on his contract with BVB, but is reportedly keen on moving to La Liga.

Dortmund boss Peter Bosz is concerned that he would not be able to find a fitting replacement for Dembele before the end of the transfer window.

It has been one disappointing transfer window for FC Barcelona, who usually is seen attracting the most talented bunch of footballers, but have contrarily seen one of the brightest talents in world football, Neymar Jr. leave for Paris-Saint-Germain in in world record Euro 222 million deal.

Dembele, on Monday, met with club officials urging them to accept the proposal.

The Bundesliga side are reportedly demanding at least €120 million for the 20-year-old France global.

Whether Barca intend to sign Dembele and Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho remains to be seen, but reports in Spain have suggested their intention is to reinvest all the Neymar money.

Dembele netted 10 times and tallied a remarkable 21 assists last term in all competitions for the German giants.

It is also believed that Dortmund have slapped a €150m price tag on Dembele, but Barca are looking to chop off €30 million from it before agreeing on a deal.

If the answer is no you need to take a long, hard look at yourself.

You've got a £50m budget to pick 11 players, with all the biggest new signings ready and raring to go ahead of a mouthwatering new Premier League campaign. Sign up to play now!
