Liverpool are planning to make a move for Barcelona youngster Ousmane Dembele at the end of the season – according to reports.
Ousmane Dembele arrived at Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund with a price tag of €145 million but the youngster has failed to find a regular spot under Ernesto Valverde.
During the summer there were whispers that Barcelona were looking for a buyer for Ousmane Dembele but nothing materialized.
And now Liverpool are looking to bring him onboard next summer.
But in order to do that, Jurgen Klopp is planning to sell two of his frontmen.
As per reports, the Liverpool manager has put both Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi up for sale.
Ernesto Valverde though has maintained that Ousmane Dembele is not up for sale saying: “I do not lose patience with him. Each one can interpret it as he wants.
Liverpool are reportedly ready to make a club record £85m bid in January for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.
