Liverpool seek January move for Barca's Dembele

Ousmane Dembele
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly eyeing a £85 million bid for Barcelona's troubled forward Ousmane Dembele in the January window.

France forward Dembele joined Barca last summer but could be on his way out amid questions over his attitude, with the Sun saying Jurgen Klopp "wants him to boost his team's Premier League title chances."

Klopp is reportedly so keen to sign the 21-year-old that he will spend £85 million, eclipsing the £75m fee that brought Virgil van Dijk to Anfield.

The Sun says Klopp "is set to test Barca's resolve on a player they bought from Borussia Dortmund for £135.5 million."

He was omitted from the squad for Sunday's defeat to Real Betis after missing training earlier in the week, but the club are reportedly reluctant to sell.
