As has felt the way ever since they bought him, the Catalan media are again talking about Barcelona wanting to sell Ousmane Dembele.

The club have been disappointed with the player’s return since they fought so hard to sign him from Borussia Dortmund. At the time several clubs were interested, including some from the Premier League, and Barca had to part with more than €100m to get the signing over the line.

Liverpool are one of the English clubs to have been linked the most in recent years, and they again get a mention in Friday’s edition of AS. It’s explained that such is the appetite for a sale at Barcelona that it’s even a topic of jokes with club executives.

An unnamed official is said to have recently jokingly asked a club doctor when Dembele would be fit again, so that he can be placed on the transfer market.

Dembele is given an €80m asking price, although that’s very much a guesstimate, and should Liverpool interest be genuine and strong then the Reds should find there’s a deal to be done here.

The player himself is thought to be keen on a move to the Premier League, where Arsenal are also interested.

Barca want to sell, Dembele fancies a move to England, this is ass set up for Liverpool.
