The report from the Spanish outlet also states that the Blaugrana are willing to sell the French winger for £89M (€100M), a great price for a player of his potential.

Dembele would be a great signing for the Reds, as the danger he poses with and without the ball has made him one of the most highly-rated young wingers in Europe.

Dembele’s first season with Barcelona was tainted with injuries, with the Frenchman only managed to make a handful of starts for the club come the season’s end.

The wide-man was part of France’s World Cup winning squad this summer that overcame all before them to take home their second world title from Russia.

It’ll be interesting to see if Dembele would be able to claim a starting role under Jurgen Klopp as Anfield should he end up sealing a move to Merseyside, as the Reds already have stars like Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane commanding their front-line.
