Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is a perfect fit for Liverpool, according to John Barnes.
The French winger has failed to light up LaLiga as many expected following a £97million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, as he has been constantly injured and in and out of that Barcelona side.
That has led to alot of speculation in the media that Barcelona may look to offload the Frenchman in the coming transfer window, especially as there are many reports that they need to pay off a £900 million debt.
However, Dembele is currently enjoying his best season yet at Barca, having finally put the injury problems that plagued him at the start of his Camp Nou career behind him, and Barnes has been among those to take notice of the Frenchman’s resurgence.
And he thinks the gifted attacker would be the ideal addition to Jurgen Klopp’s ranks at Anfield when the transfer window reopens.
“One player that I think could make it at Liverpool is Ousmane Dembele,” the former Reds star recently told BonusCodeBets. “He would fit right into the front three because his directness is perfect for Liverpool’s way of playing.
“Of all the players linked with Liverpool, he is a player that fans should be excited about. If he wants to continue playing at the biggest clubs like Barcelona then Liverpool is the right club for him.
“He’s a player that fits the way Liverpool plays and I think that Liverpool would be interested in that type of player.”
“I can’t see a reason for any of the front three to leave because they like it at Liverpool and things are going well.
“I don’t think there’s a reason any of the front three need to feel they have to leave to fulfil their ambitions because they’ve won the league and the Champions League so it’s hard to say what more they want.
“In terms of the potential to be successful, they won’t get it much better anywhere else, it’s just a question of whether they feel they want a new challenge.
“Some of them are coming up to 28/29 and sometimes players move on.”
HOWEVER, WOULD FANS THINK HE WOULD BE A GOOD FIT FOR THE CLUB?
