There is growing tension at the Camp Nou as agents of Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele have reportedly contacted two Premier League clubs secretly, Daily Star reports.
It was gathered that the 24-year-old is set to become a free agent as his existing contract with the Catalan giants will lapse next summer.
The player’s agents were recently in talks with English clubs Manchester United and Liverpool on behalf of their client.

Spanish outlet Cuatro is reporting that although the Barca have agreed an extension in principle with Frenchman, the deal is yet to be officially signed.
According to Express, his agent are said to have contacted Man Utd and Liverpool behind, as it is also believed that the player is also in talks with French club Paris Saint-Germain.
