Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have gathered around the bar to speculate what the outcome will be from a major transfer meeting taking place tomorrow, as they pray their side emerges victorious in the quest for this striker’s signature.
German outlet Bild state Liverpool remain interested in the services of Rennes forward Ousmane Dembele but the youngster could seal a move to Borussia Dortmund, with the two clubs set to meet tomorrow to discuss a deal.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed a tremendous breakthrough season in Ligue 1, netting 12 goals, and Rennes are keen to cash-in on the talented teenager this summer, although Dembele himself is not keen on a Bundesliga move.
Valued at around £15m, Liverpool and other Premier League clubs will be keeping close eyes on the meeting tomorrow to see if there’s still a chance of bringing the player to England, although if Dortmund persuade Dembele the German route is the way to go, then Liverpool will miss out.
Our landlord believes Liverpool do need a striker but has urged them to target a more proven name, given their failings with striker signings in recent years.
Liverpool fans, which area of your squad should be the main focus this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
