Some of Europe's biggest clubs have been linked with a potential swoop for the star, including PSG and Chelsea.

The Blues were planning to go all-out to sign the winger in the coming months, however, they now face some serious competition from Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Sports, the German giants are very interested in signing Dembele and have already made contact with his representatives.

Julian Nagelsmann is eager to sign a new forward who has the ability to make a difference in attack.

And with the imminent departure of Robert Lewandowski, reinforcements will be crucial.

This weekend, Bayern Munich's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic revealed that the 33-year-old striker wants to leave this summer.

He told Sky Germany: "I spoke with Lewa.

"In that discussion he informed me that he does not want to accept our offer to extend the contract and that he would like to leave the club.

"He said he wants to do something else. But our position has not changed.

"The fact is he has a contract to June 30, 2023."

While Bayern look to prioritise Dembele as an attacking replacement, Barcelona are now desperately scrambling to offer him a new deal.

Club chiefs want him to stay, but they have also told him to lower his demands.

Dembele is currently the fourth most expensive player in the world.

Barca paid £135.5m to sign him from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, but he failed to live up to expectations.

Sadio Mane ‘is open to Barcelona transfer to boost Ballon d’Or chances’ as Liverpool star nears end of contract

LIVERPOOL star Sadio Mane has been linked with a move to Barcelona, reports suggest.

That is according to Mundo Deportivo, who report that Mane is open to joining Barca as he thinks that would boost his chances of winning the Ballon d'Or.

The closest he ever came to football's highest individual honour while at Anfield was in 2019 when he finished fourth after the Reds won the Champions League.

The forward has one year left in his contract with the Merseysiders and is reportedly keen to move to LaLiga with the Blaugrana posing as his preferred destination.

This comes after reports suggesting Bayern Munich are lining up a sensational bid for the Senegal international as they see him as a "statement transfer".

It has been reported that contract discussions between Liverpool and Mane are proving to be "difficult".

The club are said to be prioritising an extension for Mohamed Salah and that is thought to have irked the African star.

Mane is among the Catalan giants' top picks to bring their attack on the same level it was before Lionel Messi's departure for Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Barcelona have looked at other options as well with Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland being their priority until recently.

However, Haaland is now close to joining Manchester City and the deal could be announced this week.

The Spanish giants have also been keeping tabs on Bayern star Robert Lewandowski.

But the German champions are not keen on letting him go, especially without a replacement lined up, and are looking to renew his contract, which also runs out next year.

Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 from Southampton and has been a standout performer ever since.

The Senegalese star has amassed a whopping total of 118 goals and 47 assists in 265 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side.
