Liverpool have been linked with Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele for years now. The press know Jurgen Klopp is a massive admirer and they love to push that narrative.
Well this season is no different. Once again, Liverpool have been linked with a move for the French winger.
Dembele signed for Barcelona in 2017 but since his transfer, the 24-year-old has been riddled with injuries.
However, according to TEAMtalk, Liverpool are once again interested in the French winger this season.
Barcelona reportedly paid around £135.5million for the winger in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund when he was tipped to be the next Neymar.
Due to injuries and Barcelona's rapid downfall, his career in Spain hasn't really kicked on.
Dembele's contract is set to end in 2022 but reports from Spain are claiming that they would like to keep him.
However, Barcelona's financial situation is in a state of emergency and they'd require him to take a paycut.
This has opened up the door for a lot of clubs to contact Dembele this January to try and get him to sign a pre-contract with them.
Liverpool are reportedly in the race, along with Juventus, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Chelsea.
TEAMtalk go on to say that Jurgen Klopp is still a fan of Ismaila Sarr and Jarrod Bowen but the chance to sign Dembele for free this January is one which Michael Edwards has told his bosses they need to capitalise on.
LFC Transfer Room Verdict
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have always had an interest in Ousmane Dembele and it's definitely a transfer that could happen next summer.
We will see this story developing within the next few months as top clubs look set to battle for the Frenchman's signature.
His wage fits in perfectly with Liverpool's wage structure and if the Reds offer him a good enough deal then we might finally see him playing at Anfield for Liverpool
