Liverpool are reportedly preparing a very late bid for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
It has been a strange summer window and the final 24 hours are now set to be weirder.
The Reds had targeted a move for Dembele much earlier in the summer. However, Dembele did not want to leave Barcelona and more so not for a team where he would not be a regular started.
This led to the talks collapsing. Now, over the last few days, Manchester United have been heavily involved with a move for Ousmane. The player is being seen as an alternative to Jadon Sancho by United and they want to bring him in on loan with an option to buy next season.
However, Liverpool it would seem are now ready to match their English rivals and make a bid for Dembele, with the player also keen to leave Catalonia.
The young star from France joined Barcelona from Dortmund two years back and was seen as a replacement for Neymar. However, that has not transpired for Barcelona’s record signing and Dembele now wants a new start – maybe Klopp can be the man to give him that new life at Anfield!
With only 24 hours left, let us wait and watch.
