Barcelona quote Liverpool price for Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona have reportedly received contact from Liverpool over the availability of their forward Ousmane Dembele.

The 22-year old has endured two campaigns blighted by injury at the Camp Nou and it has been reported that there is growing frustration over his continued fitness issues.

Diario AS cites a report from England-based website Teamtalk that claims the Blaugrana have quoted the European champions a fee of €105m for the forward.

That is the precise initial sum that the Catalan giants paid to sign the forward from Borussia Dortmund two summers ago - a deal which is also said to have included €40m in potential add-ons.

The France international netted 14 goals this season but had been restricted to just 20 starts in La Liga and failed to sustain a run of games without further injuries.

It is said that Barca need to sell first-team squad players in order to fund further reinforcements, while the player is said to be open to the idea of moving to Merseyside.

However, such links seem somewhat tenuous and are yet to be verified by any information coming directly from Spain.
