Liverpool, who are interested again in closing the Frenchman’s signing in the summer, want to take advantage of his contract situation as his profile ‘fits perfectly’ in Klopp’s plans at the club.

Barca have offered a new deal to the winger, with the same salary. In the event Dembélé refuses to commit his long-term future to the club, the Camp Nou side will make him available in the next market.

With a contract expiring in 2022, ‘everything will depend on Dembélé’. According to the claims, Liverpool are ready to ‘break the market’, and they ‘choose’ the Barca player as Mané’s replacement, as they begin ‘working’ on summer transfer business.
