​Bayern Munich's star defender Mats Hummels has revealed on twitter that he believes Borussia Dortmund's  Ousmane Dembele is the best talent in world football.

The tweet came after a fan asked him ' Who is currently the best talent in professional football for you?' and Hummels' reply was Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele. 

The Dortmund youngster is still only 19-years-old, so this is a massive compliment to the young lad who has lit up the Bundesliga, and many clubs have noticed his ever growing talent in his debut season for the club.

No player under the age of 21-years-old has more assists in the Bundesliga than Dembele, who himself has got nine. The young starlet has also racked up an impressive 44 chances created so far this season and has scored six himself.

Dortmund have potentially the best up and coming talent in the world and ex-Dortmund player Mats Hummels certainly thinks they do. His pace and skill is enough to frighten any defender in the world, even the likes of Hummels.

With his incredible pace and skill, the Frenchman has completed 73 take-ons at a 57 percent success rate, which is the highest of any one in the German Bundesliga. 

All of this talent has attracted interest from clubs around Europe, especially with Dembele not being able to fully hold down a first team spot at Dortmund.

The likes of Liverpool have been extremely interested in the winger and Klopp still really wants him to slot into his talented, and ever developing Liverpool team, according to ​reports.
