England Euro 2020 hopes receive a boost as EPL transfer target Ousmane Dembele suffers France injury woe – Daily Record

France star Ousmane Dembele is set to miss his country’s crunch clash with Portugal and is now a major doubt for the knockout stages of Euro 2020.

The 24-year-old Barcelona maverick is no longer a regular starter under Didier Deschamps but did provide a jolt from the bench for Les Bleus in their taxing 1-1 draw with Hungary on Saturday.

Dembele cracked the post with his first touch but was forced off 30 minutes after coming as he suffered a knee injury and was replaced by Thomas Lemar in the 87th minute.

And now reports in France state he’s out for the showdown with Cristiano Ronaldo and Co on Wednesday and that he could also miss the last 16 if the World Cup winners make it.

Deschamps’ side know not winning the group could see them face England in the last 16 at Wembley with Gareth Southgate’s side still the favourites to come out on top in Group D.

And while Dembele would be gutted to miss the game it would also deny him a chance to impress his many suitors in the English Premier League.

The forward has been linked with a reunion with former Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel and Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are all long-term admirers of the £100m man.

His future with Barcelona is looking increasingly uncertain after the arrivals of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay up front.

Dembele has one year left on his deal at the Nou Camp after failing to ever really hit the heights in La Liga.
