That’s according to journalist Fernando Palomo.

Barca are keen to replace Neymar following the Brazil international’s world-record £200m move to Paris St-Germain.

The La Liga champions have been linked with Borussia Dortmund star Dembele and Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

However, ESPN journalist Palomo says Barca are closing in on a £137.6m (€150m) deal for France international Dembele.

Palomo tweeted: "What I know: Dembele, according to someone close to the subject, will be done. Not in the conditions that the BVB wants, but more than what Barcelona wants.

"By Dembele, can reach up to €150m if they join the variables. Perhaps before it transcended, I say it now that I know it from a good source.

"Opinion: conditions given to think that Dembele is more outside than inside the BVB. He has the quality to play well in Barcelona."

Dortmund bought Dembele for just £13.7m last summer from French side Rennes.

Barca have also had three bids rejected for Coutinho this summer.

Liverpool are determined to keep hold of the Brazil international despite the La Liga giants offering around £120m.

Coutinho, 26, handed in a transfer request earlier this month but he’s keen for clear-the-air talks with his dream move to Barca looking unlikely.
