According to Spanish news platform El Desmarque, Premier League pacesetters Liverpool are open to making a move for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele this month.
Dembele is rated at £85m which is a lower price in comparison with the transfer fee spent to sign him three years ago.
The young Frenchman was signed by Spanish giants Barcelona as a like-for-like replacement for Paris Saint Germain (PSG) Neymar who left the club for France in the summer of 2017.
The Brazilian national team talisman was made the most expensive player ever after PSG signed him for a fee of £200m.
