Report: Liverpool ‘make contact’ with Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele

Liverpool have apparently made contact with Ousmane Dembele’s entourage to find out about his availability.

According to L’Equipe, the player is interesting the Reds and also Bayern Munich.

The French winger’s priority is to remain at the Nou Camp, but things could change if the club facilitate moves for Neymar and Antoine Griezmann.

Liverpool are said to be particularly keen on the World Cup winner, with Jurgen Klopp a long-term admirer of the youngster.

Apparently the club have requested to know where he stands several times in recent seasons and if he would consider a move to Anfield.

Dembele joined Barca in 2017 in a £135.5 million deal from Borussia Dortmund (BBC Sport), but is yet to hit top gear in Catalonia.

 

Speculation about a departure has seemingly always followed him around, and this summer appears to be no different.

TBR’s view

Liverpool have been tipped to have a quiet summer, but with Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings having both departed, the club only really have Divock Origi in reserve in terms of frontline attackers.

Klopp recently suggested (via Daily Mail) that he would be prepared to spend in order to keep pace with his Premier League rivals, and Dembele would be a major statement of intent.

Klopp seems keen on the 22-year-old, and he would likely take the winger to the next level given his track record with player development.

The Reds will no doubt have to bank on the Spanish heavyweights signing at least one of Neymar or Griezmann before they consider letting Dembele go.

He signed for a huge fee and it would take something major to happen for them to allow his departure just two years after signing.
