The report states that his improved performances on the pitch are because he has finally settled in with the squad and now understands the club's ethos and style of play.
Dembele did not have the best of debut seasons at the Nou Camp, struggling for form due to injuries and failed to adapt to the demands of the club, scoring a paltry four goals in 23 appearances in all competitions.
Despite his poor performances, he never lost the confidence of the club with sporting director Eric Abidal confident that he would come good as it takes some time to adjust to the demands of a club like Barcelona.

The 21-year-old reportedly hired a personal assistant to help him with his nutrition while also giving up on fizzy drinks as he looked to stay in peak condition and cut down on injuries.
These changes have certainly helped as he has enjoyed a brilliant start to the season, scoring five goals in six games to lead Barcelona to the top of the league table with 12 points from four games, two ahead of rivals Real Madrid.
The Catalan giants will next be seen in action when they host Girona at the Nou Camp on the 23rd of September.
