The Merseyside giants are reportedly keeping tabs on Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, who is also a summer target for rivals Man United. France international joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017, arriving at Barca as a possible long-term replacement for Neymar, who had shocked the world with his move to PSG.
The move to the Catalan giants, though, has not panned out as envisioned for Ousmane, who has been hampered considerably by a number of hamstring injuries. The ongoing campaign, however, has offered some hope of a resurgence for Dembele, who has played 35 games across all tournaments, with 9 goals and 4 assists to show for his efforts.
However, with his current deal with Blaugrana set to expire in a little over a year’s time, there are concerns over his future. This has alerted Man United and Liverpool, among others.
Man United still continue to seek a solution to their right-wing woes, especially with Mason Greenwood now seemingly being utilised centrally for good. That leaves young Amad Diallo as the only natural option on the right flank, although the Norwegian manager has used Marcus Rashford, Greenwood and Daniel James in the position.
In the 23-year-old winger, though, the Red Devils coach will have a more naturally adept option on the right-wing, which perhaps, explains why Man United have retained their interest in him. As for Liverpool, one of the newer entrants in the race to sign the French winger, a possible pursuit is not unfounded.
Liverpool could be put in a precarious position over the future of Mohamed Salah, who has recently been linked with a potential move away from Anfield.
