According to French outlet Le 10 Sport, Barcelona is considering Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman as a possible replacement for Ousmane Dembele (via ESPN).
Last season, Barcelona was interested in signing Kingsley Coman, but the deal fell through. However, with the Blaugrana looking to unload Ousmane Dembele this summer, the 25-year-old Bayern Munich winger might be at the top of Joan Laporta’s transfer wish list.
In 2017, the Blaugrana paid £135 million to Borussia Dortmund for Ousmane Dembele. However, the French international has been a letdown, as he has been forced to miss numerous games due to injury. Barcelona wants to make a profit on their big-money deal this summer rather than risk losing Dembele on a free transfer next year when his contract expires.

Barcelona will compete with Premier League clubs for the signing of Kingsley Coman.
Barcelona isn't the only team interested in pursuing Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman this summer. Chelsea and Manchester United have both expressed interest in signing the 25-year-old French international, according to the same source.
Manchester United has been looking for a fresh winger for the past two seasons. If they are unable to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, it appears like Coman will be their Plan B.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is looking for a winger to bolster their attack. The Champions League champions are willing to transfer players like Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham, who are not in Thomas Tuchel's plans for the coming season.
Barcelona will try to sign Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman with the money acquired from Dembele's transfer. The 24-year-old Frenchman, who is valued at €65 million by Transfermarkt, will not be cheap. Due to Barcelona's present financial difficulties, the club may be forced to sell some of its top players in order to bolster their team for next season.
Kingsley Coman has played for some of Europe's most prestigious clubs. Before joining Juventus, the 24-year-old was a product of Paris Saint-junior Germain's academy. Coman spent two seasons at Turin before joining Bayern Munich for €21 million.
