The News of the World says AZ want £5m for the Belgian international Dembele.

Birmingham will have to beat off competition from Olympiakos and Fiorentina to sign 23-year-old Dembele who has less than 12 months left on his contract at AZ.

Dembele, who has scored five goals in 28 appearances for Belgium, can also play on the wing which is another position that Birmingham's manager Alex McLeish wants to fill.
