Rennes striker Ousmane Dembele knows how to use social media to get his thoughts out in public.

The 18-year-old French forward is one of the hottest properties in European football, and for weeks media reports have been linking the teenager with a move to one of the big clubs.

He’s been linked to the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, but in recent times Borussia Dortmund have emerged at the most likely winners of the forward’s signature.

Bild have previously announced that Borussia Dortmund have agreed a €5m deal to sign the 18-year old this summer from Rennes.

Today Dembele appears to have bene on a mission to confirm speculation he’s moving to BVB.

Firstly, he ‘liked’ a doctored picture of himself in a BVB shirt on Twitter. He later ‘unliked’ the image, but not before we captured his screenshot.

Then, in an even more overt action, Dembele starting following Borussia Dortmund on Twitter too.

We expect the deal to be wrapped up shortly.
