The Frenchman’s current contract expires next summer and Barcelona have been working hard for several months to convince him to sign a new deal.


Dembele has the offer on his table from Barcelona but he is also looking out for offers to move clubs in the summer as well.



Newcastle are believed to have made a major offer to the player to join them in the summer as well, speaking to his entourage.


According to Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are yet to get an answer from Dembele on whether he is prepared to sign a new deal.



The Barcelona hierarchy have been in touch with the player to push for him to sign the fresh terms.


Xavi Hernandez has spoken with Dembele and has assured him that he will have a major role to play going forward.



But the Barcelona hierarchy believe that the player’s agents are pushing for a transfer in the summer.


The Catalan giants are still hopeful that Dembele will eventually agree to sign on the dotted line soon.
