Jurgen Klopp wants Barca star


Liverpool are keen to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona after Jurgen Klopp took a liking to the French winger.

The Blaugrana paid £103.5m to Borussia Dortmund for the 21-year-old, who is now on Klopp’s wanted list, report Mundo Deportivo.

Dembele’s debut season at the Nou Camp was plagued by injury, limiting him to four goals and eight assists in all competitions.

The substantial outlay from Barcelona could hinder plans to further strengthen this summer with reports that they must sell in order to fund a bumper move for Antoine Griezmann.

Quite whether Barcelona would be willing to let him move permanently remains unclear, with their significant outlay likely to lead to them preferring a loan deal.
