Hopeful Liverpool fans react on Twitter as Ousmane Dembele joins Borussia Dortmund

Paisley Gateway

The Liverpool fans are hoping his signing means they can sign Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze.

Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter to Ousmane Dembele's move to Borussia Dortmund by suggesting it could help them secure Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze. 

Dortmund confirmed on Thursday afternoon that they had completed a move for the highly rated French youngster ahead of next season.

The move has been regarded as an extremely smart move from Thomas Tuchel’s side, and partly as a reaction to rivals Bayern Munich signing Renato Sanches.

Liverpool fans are not quite as pleased though; having hoped it would be their club signing the forward this summer.

Indeed, it seems the Reds have been unfortunate to miss out on his signature, with the Guardian reporting he had met Jurgen Klopp over a potential move to Anfield.

The same report claims he was impressed by the plan the German boss put forward to him, although it apparently wasn’t impressive enough to convince him Liverpool should be his next destination.

Their fans have reacted with disappointment on Twitter as a result, but some are pleased nonetheless, anticipating it may help their attempts to lure Mario Gotze from Bayern Munich.
