Ousmane Dembele reportedly wants to quit Borussia Dortmund following the exit of coach Thomas Tuchel.

Dortmund parted company with Tuchel at the end of last season, with Dembele since demonstrating his quality when he scored for France against England during their 3-2 friendly win at the start of this month.

Tuchel signed Dembele from Rennes last summer, with the 20-year-old scoring 10 goals and providing 21 assists in all competitions for Dortmund.

But the France forward is now said to be seeking a move, though a move to Barcelona is not on the horizon, despite some reports to the contrary.

Eurosport reports: “According to our sources, he has been badly affected by the exit of Tuchel, the man who brought him to Germany from Rennes for €15m on a five-year contract a year ago.”

Their story credits Man Utd and Chelsea with an interest, despite Dortmund being likely to demand £70million for the former Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year.

Dortmund are already facing the prospect of losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the Bundesliga club having named their price for the striker.
