Liverpool consider £135m ‘injury prone ‘attacker on a free transfer

A potentially interesting transfer story to watch from a Liverpool perspective is the developing rumour that the Premier League giants are monitoring Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele’s contract situation.

According to a report via BBC Sport, Liverpool are keen on taking a chance on the 24-year-old France international whose contract is up in the summer of 2022.

Barcelona’s financial issues are likely to see Ousmane Dembele leave the club, be it for a fee in January or for nothing next summer, but his injury woes have left him facing a fight for his future – he hasn’t kicked a football competitively since the Euros.

Dembele signed for Barcelona in 2017 for an eye-watering £135.5million from Dortmund, but his career in Catalonia has been riddled with injuries.
