Liverpool have today been linked with a move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele, with Team Talk stating the Catalan side are reportedly willing to offer the Frenchman to the Reds as long as they match their £90m valuation.
Anfield is also seemingly one of Dembele’s desired destinations should he leave the Camp Nou this summer, whilst Jurgen Klopp is a known admirer of the 22-year-old.
Liverpool fans have been reacting to the rumour on Twitter, with the general consensus being that Dembele would be a very exciting addition:
Given some of the things heard about Ousmane Dembele’s injury record and attitude I couldn’t see Liverpool taking a gamble on him

No. Injury prone. Goes missing in big games. Sulks too much. He isn't the type of player to be willing to take 6 months being integrated into the team. The team must come first. Plus £90m is way over priced for how he has performed. £50m tops.

Although there are understandable qualms over Dembele’s injury record and apparent attitude problems over the way he manoeuvred a move away from Borussia Dortmund back in 2017, there is no doubting his immense talent.
Adept with the ball at his feet along with an impressive record of 14 goals and 9 assists last season, it’ll be intriguing to see if this is a deal that comes to fruition.
