Liverpool To Launch Surprise Bid For FC Barcelona Star?
UEFA Champions League finalists Liverpool are reportedly looking at launching a surprise bid for an FC Barcelona star.
According to The Sun, the Merseyside club has expressed an interest in former Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele and are hoping to bring him in ahead of the next campaign.
Although the Frenchman's time at the Blaugrana so far has been hampered by injury, some believe it is unlikely the Catalan giants will want to sell him so soon after buying him.
The 20-year-old cost the 2017/18 LaLiga champions £135.5 million (R2.30 billion) at the beginning of the season, but certain reports suggest that the player is struggling to settle in Spain.
With Barcelona expected to sign Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann within the next couple of months, Dembele could struggle to break into the first team, which could tempt Ernesto Valverde to either loan him out or sell him.
The former Stade Rennais star has managed to make 21 appearances for the Spanish giants so far this season, scoring two goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
Do you think Barca should consider selling Dembele already, or should they hang on to him for a few more seasons? Have your say in the comments section below.
