Liverpool 'considering late swoop for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele'

Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele emerges as a rumoured deadline-day target for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a last-minute move for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

The Reds have already strengthened their forward line this summer with the addition of Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, on the back of Sunday's humiliating 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa, The Mirror suggests that Jurgen Klopp's side are back in the market for another player.

Dembele is rumoured to be one possible option, with Barcelona keen to get the France international off their books ahead of Monday evening's transfer deadline.

Barca paid a club record £131m to sign Dembele as a replacement for Neymar three years ago, but they are now willing to offload for less than half that price.

The 23-year-old has struggled for form and fitness during his time at Camp Nou, and boss Ronald Koeman suggested on Sunday that a transfer is still a possibility.

Liverpool's bitter rivals Manchester United are also believed to be in the running for Dembele's signature.
