Barcelona prepared to sell £135 million striker to Liverpool

According to talkSPORT, Barcelona are prepared to sell £125 million rated forward Ousmane Dembele to Liverpool.

The 20-year old Frenchman only joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund last August, but the Spanish club may be ready to let him go, because it is expected that Antoine Griezmann will be joining them shortly from Atletico Madrid, and they need to make room in their squad for him.

That is good news for Liverpool Jurgen Klopp who is a big admirer of the  French international and is keep to bring him to Anfield. Dembele has had mixed fortunes since his £95 million move to Barcelona, injuring his hamstring in his first league start for the club, and subsequently missing four months of the season.  His return was cut short by another injury picked up against Real Sociedad which saw him spend another 4 weeks on the sidelines, and since then has struggled for regular game time.

However, he did feature in the Barcelona team which saw their hopes of going through La Liga season unbeaten end with a surprise 5 – 4 defeat at Levante on Sunday.
