“English clubs act right after Dembélé news and make hefty offers”

Several clubs acted immediately after the news that Ousmane Dembélé is probably not going to renew at FC Barcelona. Among other things, the French attacker has two major offers from the Premier League in his pocket.
On Wednesday evening, it was announced that Dembélé and Barcelona are far apart about a new contract. The former reportedly wants to earn forty million euros a year, while Barça does not want and can afford that. In England, that news has also arrived: transfer expert Fabrizio Romano knows that two Premier League clubs approached Dembélé. The English teams would offer a hefty salary to the winger.

Romano also reports that Newcastle United knocked on Dembélé weeks ago. It does not become clear whether The Magpies are also among the two clubs that are now showing interest.
