Liverpool have top quality attacking stars in the form of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane up front but if one of them gets injured then Klopp does not have a single adequate replacement.

In such a situation, the German manager needs to improve the depth of his offense and reports in Spain suggest that he wants to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the former Borussia Dortmund boss is determined to try to fight for the signing of Dembele. For that, he is even willing to talk to the French playamker and his mother to explain the plans for the next campaign.

On the other hand, Don Balon have reported that Klopp has decided to bet now to sign the 21-year-old attacker from the Catalan giants.

Dembele left Dortmund to replace Neymar at the Nou Camp last year but unfortunately, due to a thigh muscle injury, he could only make two league appearances for Barca in 2017.

Even after returning to full fitness, Valverde rarely selected the Les Bleus star in his starting XI. Overall, he could only start 12 league fixtures, scored 3 goals and provided 7 assists.

As per the provided Mundo Deportivo link, Barcelona first want to hire the services of Griezmann and after that, they will listen to offers for Dembele, whose position in the team will obviously be influenced by the arrival of the Atletico Madrid star.

The former Rennais player is renowned for his speed and dribbling skills. Moreover, he can operate on either flank and can also play as a center forward if needed. According to Don Balon, Barca want €100million from his sale.

  1. Fekir has to be the priority. Dembele would be a nice to have but if the 3 front guys go all season without injury – don’t see him getting more game time with Liverpool than he’s been getting at Barca.

    We need to prioritise a central defender and keeper as well.

    Lots to do Kloppetjie…!!
