Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona winger, Ousmane Dembele, according to TEAMtalk.

Barcelona signed the 22-year-old in 2017 to cover for the loss of Brazil international Neymar.

The Catalan side paid a massive £90million for the France international and will want the same amount for the young winger.

Barcelona have already signed Frenkie De Jong and are rumoured to be near to signing Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann. With these two major acquisitions, reports out of Spain suggest the Barcelona hierarchy are keen to recoup some funds by selling Dembele.

Jurgen Klopp has not ruled out summer signings at Liverpool.

It has been reported that intermediaries have contacted Liverpool to say that the winger is available. Dembele has also said that Anfield would be one of his preferred destinations.

Liverpool, the current champions of Europe, have not planned on spending big-money for any player, unless one of Jurgen Klopp’s top targets become available- and Dembele is one of them.

Dembele scored eight goals and managed five assists in La Liga last season for champions Barcelona and would be a very useful player for Klopp’s side to once again challenge for the Premier League.
