Liverpool manager has earlier told newsmen that he won’t be making any move to sign Barcelona young winger Ousmane Dembele in the summer, but he could be changing his mind after seeing the Frenchman’s performance for the Catalans in Wednesday’s 5-1 win over Villarreal.
The youngster was a thorn in Villarreal defenders’ flesh who couldn’t cope with his pace and tricks all through the encounter.
He also capped his blistering performance with a brace to become the first player from France to score two goals in a single match for Barcelona since 2009.
According to reports emanating from the Merseyside club, the German tactician is now considering making a loan move for his signature
The 20-year-old joined the La Liga giants last summer for a fee believed to be £135.5million but his growth was hampered by the injury he picked up in his debut match for the Blaugrana which ruled him out of action for four months.
After his showings for Barcelona on Wednesday, Valverde could rescind his decision to let go of the Frenchman this summer as he would want to give him another chance to show that yesterday’s performance was to confirm his return to form that made the club paid so much for his signature despite his young age.
Meanwhile, the Catalans have successfully been crowned the La Liga Champions after Real Madrid couldn’t defend the title they won last season. The Valverde’s team are top of the League with a massive 13 points separating them and Atletico Madrid who are in the second place.
