(Corrects number of assists)

BARCELONA, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Barcelona have completed the signing of attacking midfielder Ousmane Dembele from Germany’s Borussia Dortmund on a five-year-deal for 105 million euros ($124 million) plus add-ons, the Spanish club said on Friday.

France international Dembele scored 10 goals and provided 20 assists in all competitions to help Dortmund finish third in the Bundesliga last season. The team also won the German Cup.

A statement from Barca said Dembele would arrive in Barcelona on Sunday and have his medical on Monday before signing the contract, which will contain a release clause of 400 million euros. He will also be officially unveiled on Monday at the club’s Nou Camp stadium.

Barcelona are also targeting Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho as they look to replace star forward Neymar, who joined Paris St Germain for a world record fee of 222 million euros.
