Barcelona Transfer: Ousmane Dembele contract latest and Laporta wants Luis Diaz

Ousmane Dembele-Barcelona

Dembele contract latest

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is nearing the end of his contract at the Spanish La Liga club, and the Catalan giants are working on a new deal for the French international winger.

Next summer, the 24-year-old will be a free agent, and foreign clubs can start negotiating with him once the January transfer window opens.

Barcelona want to extend his deal by two years, but the player will have to stick to the pay cut agreed under the previous regime.

According to Sport, the Spanish outfit are prepared to offer the player a three-year deal as an alternative, but the player will have to accept reduced wages.

It will be interesting to see if Dembele is willing to commit his long term future to the club amid the interest from other European clubs.

Laporta keen on Luis Diaz

Meanwhile, Joan Laporta is already looking at potential signings, and Barcelona have identified the Porto winger Luis Diaz as a target as per Marca

The 24-year-old Colombian international has been outstanding for Porto this season, and he has scored five goals and picked up an assist in seven league games.

Diaz had an impressive campaign with the Portuguese outfit last season as well, and he was outstanding for his country during the Copa America earlier this summer.

Barcelona could definitely use more attacking depth, and the addition of Diaz could prove to be smart business.

The Colombian international has shown that he has the quality to succeed at the highest level, and a move to Barcelona could help him improve further.
