Liverpool in a good position to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona

New players

Liverpool are reportedly moving closer to landing Barcelona player Ousmane Dembele, with the Reds initially linked with the player in a loan capacity and now being linked with a permanent move.

Apparently, due to the money still to be paid for the Philippe Coutinho deal, Liverpool are in pole position to land the young winger – who hasn’t made the impression he wanted at Barcelona so far after struggling with injury issues and with a possible move for Antoine Griezmann this summer, the player could leave before he’s even had a chance.

Champions League final

The Liverpool boss opened up about how his side got to the final, and noted that the club always try and have an attacking style of play and make sure they shoot and score with each chance they have – something not all managers in the game do.

“In our case, we’ve played in the Champions League without pressure most of the time,” Klopp told UEFA.com.

“We entered the competition for the first time in a while and we quickly realised that we had a good chance.

“We aren’t anyone else. We are Liverpool, on the way to becoming a really good team, and performing at such a high level is very cool.

“To summarise, it’s been a crazy ride. But, after all, we’ve earned our place here.

 “Football should be more oriented to finishing every attack with a shot on target. And that’s what we do whenever possible.

“We didn’t put a special value on that. It’s just part of the game.”
