According to L’Equipe, Liverpool have initiated contact with Barcelona flop Ousmane Dembele with the club now expected to be able to spend ‘world record fees‘ as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen his side. The reported link to Dembele has caused a stir up in Merseyside with many fans refuting any deal.

The winger has failed to live up to expectations at the Nou Camp after joining them in an initial £96.8m move from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 – only managing 18 goals in 65 appearances over the two seasons. His place in Ernesto Valverde’s side could be under serious threat with the imminent arrival of his World Cup winning teammate Antoine Griezmann.

Reports have suggested in the past that Dembele would come with numerous disciplinary issues after the 22-year-old has been late to training and various other meetings. Dembele has also angered Klopp in the past after previously leaving the house he rented in an absolute state whilst trying to force his move to Spain. However, that seems to be in the past after the Liverpool boss confirmed he would be interested in the winger if he were available.

The Reds already have a wealth of attacking options to choose from so it remains to be seen whether Dembele would even fit in at the club.
