Liverpool in the hunt for Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

Liverpool are once again in the hunt for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele. 

The Reds have been linked with a move for the tricky winger in the past but now fresh reports have emerged stating Jurgen Klopp's side interest.

Previously, it's been claimed that Liverpool can't even afford to sign him on loan - though, these new claims suggest that they're still after the Frenchman.

Dembele has had a tough campaign, featuring just nine times, but according to Sport (via Sport Witness), the Premier League outfit are one of the sides studying him.

The 23-year-old is also attracting the attention of PSG and Juventus.

If important conditions are met then Barcelona won't close the door on Dembele whose future is very uncertain according to the report.

Transfermarkt currently rate the wide man at a colossal £50.4m.

For all the world, it looked like Timo Werner would be a Liverpool player this summer.

Rumours were rife but it now appears as though he's off to Chelsea. It's a blow to Liverpool but Dembele would be a fine alternative.

Werner is a player who can feature on the wing, an area of the pitch where Dembele has proven to be rather prolific in the past.

Although the former Dortmund man has struggled with injury this term, he racked up 14 goals last term, proving to be extremely competent in front of goal. Before his move to La Liga, he scored ten goals and set up an incredible 21 in his final campaign for Dortmund.

Although that was three years ago, it's evidence of a player who at his best, is a devastating winger. 

It doesn't sound like something Liverpool need, especially with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane in their ranks, but Dembele is only 23 years of age - he still has a lot of room to grow.
