Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is interested in signing Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.

The attacker only joined the La Liga giants last summer when he was bought for £135million, initially as Neymar’s replacement.

However, a serious injury early on wrecked his chances of creating an immediate impression and his form has suffered badly as a result since.

It is also claimed that the 20-year-old former Borussia Dortmund star has failed to settle in Catalonia and is already looking athis options with a view to quitting the Nou Camp.

Klopp was asked about reported interest in Dembele after Liverpool’s defeat by Chelsea: “Is he on the market? Now I’m interested.”

Dembele has completed just one league match this season, has been subbed off in all but one of his nine starts and has scored just one La Liga goal.
