Liverpool enter the battle to sign No.11 France international

Liverpool and Man City are reportedly looking like possible transfer destinations as the Blaugrana look to offload Ousmane Dembele. Barcelona are looking to raise nearly £58m from the sale of France international and will hope for suitors from the PL in the form of the Merseyside giants and Cityzens.

Ousmane has not been at his best at the Camp Nou for some time now, but on his day he stays a top talent who could still have a big future in the game. Dembele looked a huge prospect during his time at Borussia Dortmund, and it might well be that he can get back to his best with a move to the right club.

The 23-year-old winger might be a better fit at Anfield, who play a more direct style than Barcelona, while Man City have also tended to get a lot out of their attackers under Pep Guardiola. While Reds doesn’t look desperate for new signings upfront, Liverpool could perhaps benefit from a little more depth behind their first-choice front three.

The French forward, however, might think a move to the Etihad Stadium is better for him in terms of game time, as Pep Guardiola’s side could do with a replacement for Leroy Sane after his summer move to Bayern Munich.

It would leave Liverpool with a free run at the World Cup winner and the Blaugrana are hopeful of securing between €50m – €60m for the footballer. La Liga giants paid a club-record £131m to sign the footballer following Neymar’s departure three years ago. But in that period he has played only 75 times, scoring on 19 occasions.
