The former Ajax coach explained at a press conference that there have been several calls to locate Ousmane Dembele but all to no avail.

Capable of thriving whether deployed on either flank or as an attacking midfielder, Dembele is a very skillful player who would surely be very well suited to Barcelona's style of play.

Worryingly for Dortmund's prospects of keeping the player, Bosz confirmed Dembele simply didn't turn up for scheduled training, per Aarons: "He wasn't there this morning, and if I am completely honest, I have to say that I have no idea why he wasn't".

However, the story had changed by the afternoon, with the Bundesliga outfit releasing a statement which confirmed they had rejected an offer from the Catalan club.

"Borussia Dortmund has held talks with FC Barcelona regarding the possible transfer of the BVB player Ousmane Dembélé to FC Barcelona", the statement read. The club also insisted that the player was now in Dortmund, contrary to other rumours.

Dortmund also say that it is "not now likely" that they will let Dembele depart.

Barcelona have made no secret of their desire to land a replacement for Brazilian superstar Neymar, who joined PSG in a world-record deal last week.

Chelsea target Ousmane Dembele has not agreed personal terms with Barcelona, sporting director Michael Zorc said.

"During the meeting the representatives of FC Barcelona submitted a bid, which didn't line up with the player's extraordinary footballing talents and the value doesn't correspond to the present economic situation of the European transfer market, therefore BVB rejected the offer".

Should Dortmund allow Dembele to move to La Liga ahead of the new season?

Dembele scored 10 goals in 49 appearances last season after joining Dortmund for £13m from Rennes and helped the club win the DFB-Pokal Cup. "We tried to reach him but were unable to", Bosz said.
