Liverpool Transfer News: Barcelona Winger linked with a surprise move to Anfield. The £85 million-rated man will provide competition to the front 3.
Liverpool have one of the most complete sides in the world. The team has two very competitive fullbacks who perform on both sides of the field. In Virgil Van Dijk, they have arguably the best defender in the world right now. The midfielders aren’t the flashiest but they do everything that is expected of them while their front 3 are arguably the best in the world and at the very least, in England.
The Reds are looking good to win the Premier League this season. However, Klopp in a bid to continue the improvement of his side is already beginning to look at players he can bring to Anfield. According to El Desmarque, the German has his eyes on Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele has been linked with the Reds in the past as well. However, Klopp is now open to the idea of signing the French attacker. The report claims that the £85 million-rated man is being viewed by the German as a competition to his famed attacking trio.
Will Ousmane Dembele fit in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side?
Ousmane Dembele has failed to take the next step in his career with Barcelona. There is no denying his talent. However, he has not performed consistently for the Bluagrana. With the recent purchase of Takumi Minamoto, it is also unlikely that Liverpool will make the purchase this January.
There is also the concern regarding his discipline. This Liverpool side is a very coherent squad with everyone enjoying each other’s success. Dembele’s lack and complete disregard to discipline could threaten to pour a wet blanket on that.
With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino most likely to start a majority of the games, it is unlikely that Dembele will get a lot of chances which would ultimately result in Klopp carrying an unhappy player, which again could prove to be dampener on a squad as united as Liverpool.
