Liverpool Make Loan Offer For Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele

Liverpool Make Loan Offer For Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele

Liverpool have made an approach to Barcelona to take Ousmane Dembele on a season long loan.

The Premier League champions had been rather quiet in the transfer window, with many pundits calling for them to improve from a position of strength, but now they're very active.

On Thursday it was confirmed that Thiago Alcantara would join them from Bayern Munich, in an incredible deal for the Reds, and now they're pressing on.

According to Spanish outlet SPORT, the Reds have made an inquiry to Barca about taking Dembele for the season, for a fee, but are yet to hear from the Catalan giants.

Liverpool would pay the player's full wages for the season but the report expects that Barca would only think about selling Dembele, not loaning him.

Jurgen Klopp has an incredible front three at his disposal, in Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, but he wants to add more depth to the attacking trio.

Liverpool Could Make Sensational Move To Sign Ousmane Dembele On Loan

The Reds were somewhat lucky last season that none of their attacking force were hit with long injuries with backup Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri not on the level of the first choice trio, despite Origi's penchant for goals in big games.

Dembele was bought in August 2017 as Neymar's replacement, costing Barca an initial €105 million from Borussia Dortmund, with another €40 million in add ons.

Things haven't worked out well for the Frenchman so far though and he's played just 74 times in all competitions over the previous three seasons, thanks in the main to injuries.

He is currently on the comeback from his latest injury, a hamstring tear which kept him out for the final 19 games of the season, having previously missed 21 games earlier in the season with another injury.

Ronald Koeman's side have added Francisco Trincao and youngster Pedri to the wings this season, whilst Lionel Messi is now set to stay, so Dembele's chances might be limited.
