Ousmane Dembele, a target for a range of Premier League clubs, has dropped a major hint on Twitter that his future lies with Borussia Dortmund.

The 18-year-old Rennes star had been linked with Manchester United and Spurs amongst other European clubs, including Barcelona.

Despite being so young, the Vernon-born right winger has caught the eye in an impressive season in which he has amassed 12 goals and five assists in 24 league games.

He has made two appearances for France’s U21 side in addition, and is one of the brightest prospects the nation has to offer.

It seems that Dembele will be playing under Thomas Tuchel next season, however, as the forward has liked a Twitter post from a Dortmund fan welcoming him to the club.

Dembele dropped a hint that he may leave Rennes, who sit in seventh place in Ligue 1, in interviews with French media.

Speaking to French outlet RMC, Dembele added: “I’m discovering Ligue 1. I think especially of what happens on the pitch, and not what’s going on around it.

“I’ll be the one who decides my future, as will my family. But I’m still at Rennes. I’m thinking about the end of the season. I hope we finish in the top five.”

In a separate interview with French newspaper L’Equipe, Dembele revealed his love for a certain English club.

“I love spending time with my friends and play PlayStation. I take Manchester United.”
