And for the right price Barca are prepared to part company with Dembele.

Barcelona spent £90m to sign the France international from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017.

And according to TeamTalk, the La Liga champions would have no qualms in selling Dembele to the Merseysiders if the Reds tabled a similar sum.

Although the Barcelona star has performed well, Barca’s board want some money recouped to sign the likes of Antoine Griezmann and potentially Matthias de Ligt too.

The good news for Klopp and the Anfield outfit is that Dembele is open to a Merseyside move.

Winning the Champions League again has given the Reds extra gravitas when it comes to luring Europe's top talent.

The report states that the World Cup winner has hinted that Liverpool is one of his preferred destinations.

The Kop had not planned on a huge outlay this summer except one of Klopp’s top targets came to the market – and Dembele is one of those.

Reports recently claimed that Liverpool had made an offer for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe.

But with Dembele now reportedly open for a somewhat higher transfer fee, Klopp will expectedly change tack and pursue him.
