Barcelona's financial situation could give Liverpool hope in the search for a deal for Ousmane Dembele, according to reports from Spain.
In June, there was speculation that Liverpool would move to Dembele with the Reds linked to several strikers in order to support the front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
The report at the time Don Balon claimed that the Reds were willing to pay Barcelona's € 150 million (£ 133 million) order price for the France international, who has suffered injuries since moving to Spain.
The France striker would have been unhappy in December 2018 in Barcelona, who was convinced he was addicted to games, while there were several off-field incidents that frustrated the Barça team.
And now Liverpool has been credited with interest again as a Spanish publication Sport (by Sport Witness) thinks Jurgen Klopp has made his "goal" to take Dembele to Anfield in the next transfer window.
The report says Barcelona's view is that Dembele is "non-transferable", but the current coronavirus outbreak may apparently have an impact on the Catalan club's ability to retain its top players.
The sport adds: "The Blaugrana club was forced to apply a 70% salary reduction to all its professional athletes and an ERTE to the rest of the club's workers".
This means that Liverpool saw their opportunity to land at Dembele and is preparing for # 39; a € 90 million bid & # 39; on express request & # 39; of Klopp.
