Craig Burley explains why Ousmane Dembele is a perfect example of the power players possess when it comes to transfer requests.

Is preseason over yet? Well, it was the first cup round for Borussia Dortmund. Although it was a competitive match, it still very much had a preseason feel about it as Dortmund started their DFB-Pokal title defence against sixth-division side FC Rielasingen-Arlen. The Black and Yellows progressed to the next round, dismantling the amateur side 4-0 without much trouble at Freiburg's home ground.

Europe's top 21 aged 21 or under: Dortmund's Dembele, Pulisic, Weigl

Ousmane Dembele, at 20, has already been linked to a move to Barcelona.

Ousmane Dembele is fast, a tricky dribbler and can play incisive passes. Christian Pulisic is a creative No. 10, who can also drift inside from wide. Few players can command matches like Julian Weigl, who anchors midfield and allows others to get forward.

That's why they're on Michael Cox's list of the best 21 players in Europe aged 21 or under.
