The 25-year-old French international will be a free agent at the end of this month, and he is yet to agree on a contract with the Spanish giants.
According to reports via the Liverpool Echo, Premier League giants Liverpool have now submitted an offer to sign the French international on a free transfer. It’ll be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp’s side can convince him to move to Merseyside.
Barcelona are reportedly keen on keeping him at the club for the long run, and they are trying to convince the player to extend his deal at Camp Nou.
The 25-year-old has struggled with persistent injury problems since joining the Spanish club from Borussia Dortmund. Still, there is no doubt that he has the potential to develop into a world-class footballer.
Despite playing just 21 league games last season, the Frenchman picked up 13 assists and was one of the key attackers under Xavi Hernandez.
The newly appointed Barcelona manager managed to get the best out of the Frenchman, and Dembele can certainly fulfil his tremendous potential under the management of the World Cup winner.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are not the only club looking to sign Dembele this summer. Bayern Munich, Paris Saint Germain, and Chelsea are all keeping tabs on the player.
A player of his calibre will want to compete in the Champions League next season, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
The likes of PSG can certainly offer him a lucrative contract, but the chance to play in the Premier League under one of the best managers in world football could tempt the 25-year-old to move to Liverpool.
The Reds were linked with a move for the Frenchman before he joined Borussia Dortmund, and it will be interesting to see if Liverpool can finally sign him this summer.
The Reds will have to bring in a quality long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah, who is expected to leave the club next summer, and Dembele certainly fits the bill.
If he can stay fit, the Barcelona winger could improve any side in world football, and he would be a major asset for the Reds in the future.
The 25-year-old is yet to reach his peak, and a world-class manager like Klopp could harness his tremendous potential over the next few seasons.
