What Jurgen Klopp said about Ousmane Dembele in 2018 hints at summer transfer stance


Liverpool are reportedly eyeing up a £43million move to try and sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona this summer and Jurgen Klopp has already made his feelings clear on the Frenchman. With just a few weeks remaining of the season, Liverpool’s main focus will be on trying to clinch a Champions League qualification spot, despite the drama of the European Super League proposals.

They could move into the top four this evening if they pick up all three points against Leeds with just six games remaining after the final whistle.

They still have to face Manchester United in their final few matches, but face a relatively favourable run of fixtures.

But while Klopp will be focusing on the race for a top-four finish, club officials will also be working on plans for the start of the summer transfer window.

No decision has yet been made on when the summer transfer window will open but, with the European Championships taking place this year, clubs will have little time to conduct business.

Liverpool have proven in the past that they like to get deals over the line early in the window and Fabinho was signed well in advance of the 2018 World Cup for example.

Speculation suggests that Liverpool will be in the market for another forward player this summer to help provide more competition for the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Diogo Jota proved an instant hit after his arrival from Wolves, but Liverpool have still lacked their usual cutting edge in recent months.

They remain vaguely linked with a mega-money move for Kylian Mbappe, while Erling Haaland will also undoubtedly attract attention on Merseyside.
