Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp wants to sign £85million-rated Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, according to reports in Spain.

Liverpool broke the record for the best start to a season by any team in the top five European leagues after their 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday night - but Klopp is in no mood to rest on his laurels.

The German tactician has already added Japan international Takumi Minamino to his forward ranks this month but ostensibly wants more depth in attack.

And, according to Spanish media outlet El Desmarque, one such player is Barcelona’s Dembele.

The Frenchman has contended with injury problems during his time at Camp Nou since joining from Borussia Dortmund for £112.5m in August 2017.

Barcelona are willing to sell the winger and will demand £85m (€100m).
