Ousmane Dembele is most likely to join a Premier League club if he leaves Barcelona before Monday’s deadline.
His representatives Moussa Sissoko and Marco Lichtsteiner are working to find a solution for the winger whose Barcelona contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
The club told Dembele again on Thursday to find another club if he does not want to not sign their previous offer of a new short-term contract with a wage reduction.

Dembele would prefer to stay for the remainder of his current deal but Barcelona have made it clear they want him out now and have even threatened to leave him in the stands if he stays.
The 24-year-old joined the club from Borussia Dortmund for £135m in the summer of 2017 – just weeks after Neymar’s world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain – but has struggled with injuries for much of his time in Spain.
Dembele has started just six matches this season with his only goal coming in the Copa del Rey victory at third-tier Linares earlier this month.
Dembele said last week he will “not give in to blackmail” after the club told the Frenchman he must leave in the January transfer window.
