Dembele, 25, is out of contract with Barcelona at the end of the month and could leave for free, five years after joining the Catalan club in a £96.8m move from Borussia Dortmund.
The France international has struggled with his fitness and form throughout his time in Spanish football.
He managed just two goals in 32 appearances last season and recent reports in Spain have claimed the winger is keen to leave the club this summer.
Chelsea have been touted as a potential destination for Dembele, with Thomas Tuchel looking to bolster his attacking options with Romelu Lukaku set to rejoin Inter Milan on loan.
However, Dembele has rubbished those reports, claiming he is "fine" at Barcelona and plans to sign a new contract with the club.
Footage circulating on social media shows a fan interacting with Dembele while the player is sat in car at a traffic light.

"Are you staying in Barcelona?" the fan asks, with Dembele replying: "Yes."
The supporter then asks Dembele about Chelsea and whether he wants to work with Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.
Dembele replies: "I'm fine at Barcelona."
Dembele refused to sign a new contract with Barcelona earlier this season, which would have seen him take a significant pay cut.
However, he could yet remain at the Nou Camp, with head coach Xavi reportedly keen to keep the winger.
Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson believes the Premier League side should make an approach for Dembele.
"I believe it's a no-brainer. You've got to do some clever business. You can't just go out and spend top dollar for all the best players," Johnson told bettingodds.com.
"If you can get players on the cheap or on a free then it makes absolute sense. You have to think, what would Dembele cost if he had four years left on his contract?
"So yes, I think if that sort of deal becomes available then you have to jump at it."
