The Jamaican international has been linked with moves to the Premier League with Liverpool and Chelsea monitoring his progress in Belgium.

Both wingers are seen as stars of the future, another option for Barca boss Ernesto Valverde could look to do business in January with Ousmane Dembele out until the new year with injury.
