Liverpool have always been interested in Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, long before he signed for the La Liga champions.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the Reds have gone ahead with an offer for Dembele. He is not greatly favoured at Barcelona and is tipped to leave this summer.
This will definitely be a terrific opportunity for Dembele. His move to Camp Nou has quite not worked out and it would be a welcome change to play under a manager who cherishes his talents. Despite his injury record, the Frenchman is still a ridiculously talented player, capable of becoming a star at the highest level.
Barcelona are already plotting several exits this summer following a managerial change this season. Qique Setien will be reshuffling the pack to sign players more suited to his style. Prominent figures like Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Antoine Griezmann, Arthur Melo and Ivan Rakitic can be shipped out.
Liverpool have a brilliant front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah but no able backup to challenge their positions. Dembele will definitely shake up the order and bring more attacking dynamism to the lineup. Whether his transfer fee will be worth it, is debatable.
