Ousmane Dembélé is reportedly available for £42m and that would be outstanding business from Liverpool. The Reds must be watching.
L’Équipe claim that Ousmane Dembélé has a bargain release clause at Barcelona. The Frenchman signed a new contract this summer after his previous deal expired.
Those negotiations were chaotic, though. Dembélé turned down at least one offer from Barcelona and looked set to leave for nothing. Eventually, the two parties found a compromise.
And it’s an interesting one. The report explains that while Dembélé returned to Catalonia, he can leave for just £42m. Barcelona appear to have agreed to that clause because the player waived a signing-on fee and agent fees.
For that price, Liverpool must have eyes on the player.
