Dembele, 24, has joined Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the season after being identified as a replacement for the recently departed Diego Costa.
The French forward, who boasts a professional goal-scoring record of 127 in 282 matches, in all competitions, will wear the number-19 shirt at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Dembele will undoubtedly come straight into Diego Simeone’s first-team plans as the Spanish side continue in their quest to lift their 11th La Liga title.
The deal’s competition was confirmed on Atletico Madrid’s official social media.
