After Liverpool's reported enquiry, Moussa Dembele would provide great competition for Roberto Firmino

Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing the Lyon hitman.

Liverpool have reportedly enquired about Lyon ace Moussa Dembele (The Mirror), and if they are successful in their pursuit of the Frenchman, he would be the ideal back-up for Roberto Firmino.

The 22-year-old joined Lyon from Celtic last summer, and he impressed in his debut season at the Olympic Stadium, racking up 15 goals in 33 Ligue 1 outings.

 

Dembele would be a useful addition for the Reds, as Jurgen Klopp looks to provide more competition for Roberto Firmino, especially after the confirmed departure of Daniel Sturridge.

According to Goal, Dmebele could be available for just €40 million (£35.4 million) this summer - a fee that would represent decent value for money for Liverpool for someone with the Frenchman's potential and ability.

The former Celtic ace possesses pace in abundance, and with 102 goals in 220 career appearances to his name, he seems to have the whole package.

Whilst he would not be a regular starter at Liverpool, he would undoubtedly strengthen Jurgen Klopp's frontline, and if the German manages to sign him this summer, the Merseyside outfit will be in a great position to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
