Barcelona tell Liverpool they have to bid £94m to sign Klopp’s dream target

Liverpool have reportedly been informed by Barcelona that it will take a bid of £94m if they are to land Ousmane Dembele this summer.

The 22-year-old has spent the past two seasons at Camp Nou, making 65 appearances for the club and scoring 18 times.

Dembele’s future was called into question towards the end of the 2018-19 campaign amid accusations of poor punctuality, combined with his problematic injury issues.

Rumours emerged earlier this week suggesting that Liverpool were about to test Barca’s resolve by tabling an offer, but AS claims that the Reds are likely to be priced out of a move.

The Spanish champions are said to be aiming to recoup the upfront sum paid to Borussia Dortmund for the France international should they cash in.

Dembele has also been linked with a move to Manchester City in the past.
