Liverpool are said to be big fans of Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, with reports suggesting that Jurgen Klopp wants the attacker.
Guillem Balague has rubbished suggestions that Liverpool are going after Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona on his own Youtube channel.
However, Balague suggests that although Dembele does fit the profile of player that Liverpool are looking at, a move to Anfield is not on the cards.
Liverpool are apparently concerned by Dembele’s injury record, and consider the deal too much of a gamble currently.
“People are suggesting in the media that Dembele is wanted by Liverpool, but I don’t think so,” Balague said.
“They are very aware of his injuries and it’s a risk to take for Liverpool even though, of course, Klopp would like that kind of player.”
Dembele has struggled badly with injuries at Barcelona, and has barely played any football over the past two years.
The French international is still regarded as a hugely exciting talent, but he needs to stay off the treatment table if he is to fulfil his potential.
Liverpool are thought to be on the hunt for a new attacker this summer, as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen his side’s front-line.
Liverpool already have Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane at Anfield, but it thought that Klopp wants to add more quality to his attack for next term.
