Liverpool to beat Arsenal to the signing of £200,500-a-week star

Ousmane Dembele ticks correctly in all the right places as an attacker, notching up six goals and two assists in 11 games in all competitions for Barcelona this season.

Dembele has struggled to hold down a berth at the La Liga outfit since joining from Borussia Dortmund last season.

His raft of bitter feuds with the club and Ernesto Velverde inability to find him a more comfortable role in his squad has proved very challenging for the 21-year-old World Cup winner.

Dembele is brimming with anger and that has affected his behaviour in the club. It has been tough on the Catalans to weed out such ill-behaviour. It is probably why they want to give him up in the January transfer window according to reports in Spain.

If the exclusive report written in the Sun are anything to go by, Merseysiders Liverpool are willing to bargain a deal for the youngster.

Dembele is a very adept attacker and his deftly techniques can score Liverpool more points in the second half of the Premier League season, if they can secure his signature.

Jurgen Klopp is ‘ready’ to fork out £85m to prise him away from Camp Nou, admits the Sun.

But that will be met with fierce rivalry from Arsenal who have also submitted their interests in Dembele.

Dembele current wage structure at Barcelona stands around 200,500 pounds-a-week.
