Liverpool in the battle to sign €75m-rated France international

Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele has raised one or two eyebrows by liking an Instagram post about a transfer to Merseyside club. It’s been some time since Liverpool were linked with France international, though recently Don Balon claimed they held an interest in the winger as his Blaugrana future looked in doubt.

Things certainly haven’t gone to plan for Ousmane in his time at the Catalan club, and World Cup winner has made his feelings pretty clear by liking the post below. Jurgen Klopp wants to strengthen the front-line during the transfer window.

It’s not clear if the ‘transfer news’ being described in the caption is at all accurate, but it almost doesn’t matter, Dembele likes the idea of himself at Liverpool and the image of himself photoshopped into the club’s kit. Liverpool signed Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg during the winter transfer window.

The 22-year-old winger surely also knows that social media activity like this is going to get attention, so it will be interesting to see how this story develops. Whether he ends up at Merseyside club or somewhere else, French star has struggled at Barcelona, and this sort of thing only fuels the idea that he won’t be at the club for much longer.

Liverpool have fantastic consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are leading the table. Merseyside club signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Sepp van den Berg from Zwolle, Harvey Elliott from Fulham, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian and English shot-stopper Andy Lonergan.
