Barcelona have completed the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in a deal potentially worth €147 million.
The €222m received from Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar sparked the Liga side's pursuit of Dembele and Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho in the close season, but they saw bids for each rejected.
While Liverpool have stood firm on their insistence that Coutinho is not for sale, Dortmund have surrendered to Dembele's wishes and allowed him to leave.
He will arrive in Spain over the weekend to undergo a medical and sign his contract ahead of his official unveiling at Camp Nou on Monday.
He is the fifth signing Barca have made in the current window, joining Marlon, Nelson Semedo Paulinho and Gerard Deulofeu in moving to Camp Nou.
Ousmane Dembele has big boots to fill at Barcelona – or more accurately a big shirt.
The €105 million signing from Borussia Dortmund has replaced Neymar at the Camp Nou club and has also claimed the Brazilian's squad No.11.
Neymar left Barca in acrimonious circumstances when he moved to Paris Saint-Germain in a world record €222 million deal, leaving vacant his position in the side and the shirt.

He arrives in Catalunya having initially taken the No.23 when he started his professional career with Rennes, while last term in Dortmund he sported the 7 top.
By taking the 11 shirt in Barcelona, he joins an illustrious list of players to have claimed the top, including Rivaldo, Marc Overmars and Txiki Begiristain.
