The 20-year-old was one of the breakout stars of the 2016/17 Bundesliga season, enjoying an incredible debut campaign in the German top flight after joining Dortmund from Stade Rennes in summer 2016.
The France international scored six league goals and provided 12 assists, the majority of which were for 31-goal top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He impressed onlookers far and wide with his scintillating pace, trickery and unrivalled ability to beat his marker, and scored the opening goal in the DFB Cup final in May as Dortmund lifted the trophy with a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Naturally enough, that attracted the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs, but Dembele is more than content to stay put at the Signal Iduna Park.
"I'm not interested in speculation at all," he told Bild newspaper. "I'm happy in Dortmund. I made a conscious decision to come to this club after my time at Stade Rennes."
Watch: Dembele's dazzling debut campaign
A change in head coach this summer has done little to dampen that enthusiasm, and the attacker is eager for the new era under Peter Bosz to be a fruitful one: "He speaks fluent French and I hope that I can keep improving under him. But not only me – the whole team's got a good future. I want to win the Champions League, I'd like to win the World Cup with France and obviously I want to win more titles with BVB."
Prior to that, however, more every day necessities may require his attention, with Dembele confessing to having, "two cars but I don't have a driver's license. At the moment my uncle drives me around Dortmund. I'll take my driving test in France eventually."
Already in the fast lane to the top, another season firing on all cylinders for BVB could well see Dembele achieving at least one of his objectives.
