Liverpool can strike an unbelievable bargain as report claims ‘phenomenon’ has a £42m release clause

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.

Dembélé is a player Liverpool like. They’ve been linked for years, after all, with the most recent talk coming in the summer. Mundo Deportivo claim that he was at the top of the Reds’ list if Mohamed Salah had left.
He’s picked up two goals and two assists in 399 La Liga minutes this season, while averaging three key passes per game. Dembélé looks dominant and could potentially be a key signing for Liverpool – if they want him.
We think they might. Roberto Firmino likely leaves in the summer with the end of his contract, after all, and Liverpool will want a new forward. Dembélé could come in as a play to both cover Salah – and eventually replace him – while playing the central role he actually prefers.
We’d certainly back Jurgen Klopp and co. to convert Dembélé into a world-class central attacker. They did it with Diogo Jota, after all.
Dembélé has the talent of a ‘phenomenon’, in the words of Leo Messi. For £42m, we’d love to see that at Liverpool.
