Pace and versatility
Born in Vernon, France on 15 May 1997, Ousmane Dembélé
is one of the best young players in the world. The French winger stands
out for his pace, ability to beat men and versatility. He comes to FC
Barcelona after having demonstrated his quality with Rennes and then
Borussia Dortmund. He can play on either wing in attack and is known for
his great dribbling (last season he carried 103 successful dribbles,
more than anyone else in the Bundesliga).
At 20 years of age he has played a total of seven games with the
French national side alongside Barça players Samuel Umtiti and Lucas
Digne. Last season Dembélé scored 10 goals in 49 matches aside from
being third on list of players with most assists in Europe with 20 in
all competitions. Without doubt he is hugely talented player, one of the
best on the continent.
