Borussia Dortmund have been hit by a body blow after Ousmane Dembele didn’t report for training on Thursday, as he looks to force a move to Barcelona.

New Dortmund boss Peter Bosz confirmed that the player had not shown up, and that the club did not know of his whereabouts.

“Dembele didn’t show up for training today,” Bosz told local reporters from Ruhr Nachrichten. “We don’t know where he is. We couldn’t reach him today.”
