Dortmund searching for Ousmane Dembele amidst player exit rumours


Peter Bosz, the manager of Borussia Dortmund admits he is unaware of the whereabouts of midfielder Ousmane Dembele.

The 20-year-old missed first-team training on Thursday amidst rumours of a reported move to Barcelona as the Spanish club aim to find a replacement for Neymar who just completed a £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Peter Bosz revealed the France international had not answered his phone when contacted by the club.

“Dembele wasn’t at training today. I have no idea why he wasn’t there. We tried to reach him but couldn’t,” Bosz said.

“First I have to talk to Dembele, then he has to explain to me why he wasn’t here today. I hope nothing serious happened.”

Dembele scored 10 goals in 49 appearances last season after joining Dortmund for £13m from Rennes.
