Born in Vernon, France, Dembele is an 18 year old winger/forward who plays for Rennes in Ligue 1. Making his debut this season, he already has 6 goals and 2 assists to his in around 15 matches. Strengths are pace, dribbling which he has in abundance. Already being touted by many as the next big thing out of ligue1 and possibly the most talented French player in recent times. Although it is too early, if he keeps on playing the way he is then there is no doubt he will be one of the best players in world football in no time.

Scored a hatrick against Nantes today. Now has 9 goals and 3 assists to his name. Outstanding stuff for a 18 year old.

Rennes had really tough time to make him sign his first professional contract. Others club were already try to get him.

He looks so easy when dribbling while keeping his speed.

His speed on the ball is phenomenal really. But that's not all, he's not just a speed merchant. He knows how to dribble and has great passing ability as well.

It would be a bad move to go yet, he should stay there until he has a dominant season.

I'm not an expert on French Football, but I thought Martial had more league goals than that at that age.

He's only 20 now. Unless the Under 19 actually means Under 19 and not the usual football meaning of 19 and under.

So often youngsters get jinxed and their careers fall of the track, but this guy, given he keeps his head on his shoulders, will be among the best If not the best player in the world. You see players with good dribbling yet they cannot pass that well, some can pass well but not dribble or shoot well, but this guy has what you can call the complete game. And damn he's quick. Funny how his agility in FIFA 16 is under 70. Lol

Best Rennes player against Lyon. This was supposed to be a big test for him since Lyon bas been doing well recently and dembele managed to standout. Although he didn't score he did assist one from a corner and the second goal too was after his shot had been saved by the keeper lopes. Given a 7.5/10 by Maxifoot, which is certainly good.

A goal and a assist against Marseille at the veldrome. Ran their defense ragged all night.

Very interesting player. After missing the ship with Coman I want this guy in Juve, he looks much more dangerous then Coman too with ability to cut in.

Scored two more against Reims this week. If he keeps up this rate, he may well reach 20 goals in all competitions this season and for a 18 year old, that is quite sick.
