Liverpool join Ousmane Dembele race

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.
The injury-hit Frenchman is thought to be in talks over a new two-year deal at Camp Nou, but as it stands he will be able to walk away from the club for free at the end of the season.

Manchester United and Manchester City are both reportedly keeping a close eye on Dembele’s future, with Pep Guardiola’s side tipped to complete a part-exchange deal for Dembele involving Raheem Sterling.

However, TEAMtalk claims that Liverpool are also in the race for Dembele’s signature, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane’s long-term futures still uncertain.

The report adds that Jurgen Klopp is a ‘huge fan’ of Dembele, and sporting director Michael Edwards is determined to press ahead with a free transfer in the summer of 2022.

Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Juventus have also been linked with a move for the 24-year-old, who has registered 30 goals and 21 assists in 118 games for Barcelona since 2017.
