Eric Abidal does not believe sought-after Monaco star Kylian Mbappe is worth £120million but he said Ousmane Dembele would fit in well at Camp Nou.

Teenage sensation Mbappe is the most sought-after player in football, with Barca, rivals Real Madrid, Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool all linked with big-money moves for the 18-year-old forward.

Mbappe's club Monaco are reluctant to part with their prized asset, with a record fee required to lure the France international from the Stade Louis II.

Despite Mbappe scoring 26 goals in all competitions as Monaco dethroned Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 and reached the Champions League semi-finals, countryman Abidal does not agree with the transfer figures being touted.

Abidal said:

"Mbappe is a good player, but his price is not £120m," Abidal told Cadena Ser.

"I still think he wants to stay in Monaco and confirm his level there.

"He has to make a decision also thinking about his game minutes, because this is the year of the World Cup."

Abidal added: "When you start to pay £100m as was done by Pogba, then for a player with more talent you have to reach £200m and that does not represent the value of the players.

"Here at Barca, what price would be paid for [Lionel] Messi or Neymar?"

Borussia Dortmund's Dembele has also been linked with Barca, having revealed the Catalan giants were interested in him last year.

"Dembele is a very talented player, he would fit very well in the club," added Abidal.

"If the bench is strong things are achieved, the signings will help a lot."
