A number of Liverpool supporters have reacted with doubt on social media to the club’s reported transfer plot to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The Sun claims that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is planning a club record £85million move for the France international come January.

The Liverpool fans clearly do not think much about the rumours, turning to Twitter to voice their reactions to the claims, either believing them to be inaccurate or that the move is simply a bad idea.

COMMENTARY

It’s natural for the Liverpool supporters to be doubtful about a move of this magnitude. Dembele is one of the most expensive footballers of all time and is still just 21 years of age, it’s hard to believe that Barcelona would give up on him already. However, he has failed to live up to his price tag in Catalonia so maybe Ernesto Valverde’s team would be open to letting him go, who knows? If Barca were willing to sell Dembele then Liverpool would be one of the club’s big enough to be able to bring him in. Klopp’s team appear to be on the verge of great things and Dembele would doubtless recognise that as well. The Frenchman could be just the player to help the Reds end their long title drought. However, this is one of those moves that should be taken with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise.
