Barcelona have slapped a £94million price-tag on Ousmane Dembele as Liverpool reportedly weigh up an opening bid for the French winger.

The 22-year-old, who arrived from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, made 42 appearances in all competitions for the Catalan club during the 2018-19 season.

Despite scoring 14 goals and providing eight assists during the campaign, the France international has found himself under scrutiny with questions over his attitude and fitness.

The player reportedly angered staff and players by missing a training session in November before turning up late to another a month later.

It it his off-the-pitch antics and his fitness troubles that has led to uncertainty over his future at the Nou Camp and reports in Spain suggest Liverpool have contacted the Spanish giants regarding his availability.

AS has claimed that Barcelona want £94m if they are to part ways with the France international, a fee which would see them recoup the initial amount they paid Dortmund.
