Ousmane Dembele

Despite being unsettled at Spanish Giants Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele and once again he was at the rescue for his team in a La Liga game against Athletico Madrid a clear signal that he is awaiting success for any club who wishes to poach him.

According to reports, Dembele has told the club that he wants to leave in January amid strong interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Gunners were heavily linked with the French international pre the 2018-19 season and have once again resumed their interest as they have asked about the attacker’s potential availability.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has also sanctioned a £85million bid for the Frenchman in the January transfer window, as the German tactician believes the addition of the player to his squad will increase their chances of a potential premier league title .

Reports from Spain say Dembele has now informed Barca officials that he’s intent on leaving this winter and the La Liga outfit are open to selling the former Borussia Dortmund man to fund an audacious move for former player Brazilian star Neymar.

The Catalonians sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of €222m in August 2017 but are seriously exploring the possibility of a return for the Brazilian superstar and only a sale of Dembele will deliver that huge sum to the club.

Liverpool have intensified their interest and a deal might pull through in January if these latest reports are anything to go by.
