Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to continue his summer spending by adding Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele to the team.

Barcelona bought Dembele for £103.5 million from Borussia Dortmund last summer, but the Frenchman’s season was ruined by injury and he scored just 4 goals in all competitions.

While he is still rated as one of the most promising talents in Europe, Barca could be tempted to sell him in order to fund a move for Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo are reporting Liverpool’s interest but it isn’t clear if any deal would be permanent or loan. After such a huge outlay last year, Barca may want to loan Dembele out to recapture his form.

Klopp has already been busy in the transfer market this summer, bringing in Fabinho for an initial £39 million, as well as Naby Keita arriving from RB Leipzig having completed his loan there.
