The Parisians haven’t given up on their hopes of signing the French winger.

Ousmane Dembele has insisted he’s happy with his life at Barcelona despite reports linking him with a return to France.

Following a lengthy transfer saga, Barcelona managed to tie Dembele down to a new contract last year.

Since then, the Frenchman has reached his best form under Xavi Hernandez, becoming a pillar of Barca’s attacking line. However, Paris Saint Germain are reportedly still pushing to prize away the Barcelona star.

“I signed a new contract at Barca four months ago and I’m happy here,” Dembele told Belgian broadcaster Eleven when asked whether he still considers leaving Camp Nou.

“I want to keep working and improving at Barcelona.

“I am good here, I am happy in Barcelona, I like my life here. The coach trusts me and the board too.”

In his 11 starts for Barcelona this season, Dembele has registered nine goal contributions. The Frenchman has successfully adapted to Blaugrana’s new attacking tactics, which Xavi has formed around Robert Lewandowski.

The 25-year-old scored for Barcelona when they edged out Intercity in the Cope del Rey on Wednesday. Xavi’s men will return to action when they take on Atletico Madrid in La Liga next weekend.
