Dembele of Barcelona, loan and option to buy offer coming from Liverpool shortly.

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Jun 2020 18:40:04
I think this was a good while ago we asked Barcelona on his availability, Ed002 advises at the time. Unless there is something new.

{Ed002's Note - His price will have dropped a great deal since then.}

03 Jun 2020 18:41:37
No thanks, more time on the doctors table than top of the table with us.

03 Jun 2020 18:57:20
Agreed Baz, I can't see this been true personally.

03 Jun 2020 19:49:58
It hasn’t gone well for him at Barcelona but I remember seeing him at Dortmund and he was such an exciting talent. Better than Sancho IMO.
It’d be interesting to see if Klopp could get him back to that.

03 Jun 2020 19:50:16
Do you no if any truth in this then Ed, something new I mean.

{Ed002's Note - I understand the idea of a loan with an option to buy has been raised.}

03 Jun 2020 20:03:46
Wow I’m surprised tbh, hope it don’t mean Salah might be on his way.

03 Jun 2020 20:09:03
Think loan with option to buY would be a good deal for us. He has spent a lot of time on treatment table at barce and I think I remember there being question marks over his attitude, however the potential is there for him to be a superstar.

Coutinho was a flopp at inter, salah a flopp at Chelsea. they turned out okay for us.

I'd prefer Werner I think but dembele could be an awesome option for us to have next season.

{Ed002's Note - Unless something has changed he has been resisting leaving Barcelona having already refused a move elsewhere. Barcelona want to sell to raise money or use players in part exchange.}

03 Jun 2020 20:22:16
Timo Werner all day over Dembele. Werner wants to come to us, desire and good attitude over injury prone, lazy and arrogant Dembele.

03 Jun 2020 21:04:21
Sincerely hope we’re not after him. He’s a waster of Balotelli proportions.

He’s almost always late for training, apparently Barcelona have warned him about his diet and lifestyle away from playing.

As for him as a player, his end product is questionable as he doesn’t score loads and doesn’t create much, he’s inconsistent when he is match fit and more often than not he’s injured because he’s made out of crisps.

Just because Barcelona made a bad decision in signing him doesn’t mean we should repeat their mistake.

The club should be busting a gut to get Werner, not idiots like Dembele.

03 Jun 2020 21:06:56
I don’t agree that Dembele was a more exciting talent than Sancho, he never got into double figures at Dortmund and hasn’t since. Barcelona panic bought after selling Neymar and have ended up with a dud. It’s best that we leave well alone as he has mistake written all over him. Bad attitude, over inflated self opinion and seriously injury prone. Not to mention a salary of over £200,000 a week. No thanks, no thanks at all.

03 Jun 2020 21:12:11
Cheers Ed. Why is he resisting a move? Seems his time at barce has been a bit of a disaster!

{Ed002's Note - I guess he is convinced he can make it. He has been offered to two good sides in part exchange options but they have not been interested. Klopp has had the klipperties for him, and, on form he is a decent player.}

03 Jun 2020 21:13:42
On the topic of dembele Ed what's the current situation with the young karamoko dembele of Celtic? Will we see him moving anytime soon?

{Ed002's Note - You need the Celtic page and the views of the omnipotent Ed007.}

03 Jun 2020 21:17:21
He has plenty of ability. Almost reminds me a bit of a ballotelli situation.

If the club can’t spend the money needed for Werner I’d take dembele on loan and see how he does. But after hearing how we have seem to of made Werner damaged good surely we will get it over the line. Maybe we have players Leipzig maybe interested in I don’t know be better we didn’t keep getting ourselves in these messes.

03 Jun 2020 21:24:31
Ed I guess with him not wanting to leave Barcelona a move is unlikely then, I assume this would be instead of Werner as no way we can fund both.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him gone completely and will look to ease him out somehow.}

03 Jun 2020 22:43:58
Don’t think he’d be the worst signing as he has plenty of ability, I believe Klopp is very capable of getting the best out of him. If that’s the case a loan with the option to buy is a good option low risk potentially high reward. Reckon he would definitely be a good back up option and certainly an adequate player to start games.

Of course Werner is the guy the vast majority of us want and I wouldn’t be surprised if we agree a deal for him to join the year after.

03 Jun 2020 22:37:53
For those wondering what position he’d play if he came, I can answer that one, it’s lying down on the treatment table.

Joking aside, thankfully it looks like his ego has stepped in and he’s told Barcelona he doesn’t want the move, hopefully this is the end of the matter!

04 Jun 2020 00:03:20
The fact that he doesn't want to leave Barcelona for us is enough for me, whoever doesn't want to join us and is more so forced to do so, is never going to give 100%. We need to stay well away from him, injury prone and only wants Barca, leave him there.

If we sign him I'll be very surprised. I'd much prefer us to give a chance to one of our youngsters than this.

04 Jun 2020 02:33:16
Ed002 has said that Klopp wants him. Klopp hasn’t got many, if any, transfers wrong. This reminds me of when we were first linked to Mane - bad attitude, not worth the hassle Etc. Maybe Klopp knows how to handle wayward talents? I remember Dembele being incredibly exciting at Dortmund, lightning quick. Haven’t seen him much at Barcelona though. Salah could play as a striker with Bobby behind. Maybe.

04 Jun 2020 06:47:37
I like that KloppBoom, I remember him at Dortmund he was an incredible player and still has the talent in there somewhere. Maybe he has been over shadowed at Barcelona by Messi Suarez etc, coupled with a few injury’s. I would like him to play for us but not at the expense of Werner.

Looks like a non starter anyway if he doesn’t want to come. Although maybe if we approach Barcelona first and get Klipperty on the phone to him .

04 Jun 2020 08:48:54
Playing devils advocate, dembele may work on a loan to buy as a replacement for mane or salah next year. Get him in, get used to the system then up and running next year.
As kloppboom said there are few that klopp has got wrong, but hopefully he keeps that phone in his pocket.

04 Jun 2020 10:46:13
I think the perception of Mane having a bad attitude was unfair and almost solely down to one incident where he downed tools after Southampton refused to accept an offer from Man Utd for him.

Other than that he’d been absolutely fine. Dembele just has no interest in acting in a professional manner. By all accounts he’s a big time Charlie who refuses to listen to the manager and coaches at Barca, which is part of the reason they’re so keen to get shot of him. Having said all this, it is pretty academic anyway as by all accounts he’s refused to entertain the idea of joining us, which is fine by me and hopefully tells Klopp as much as he needs to know.

04 Jun 2020 11:25:46
Not keen, lazy and no discipline it seems. Just get werner done.

04 Jun 2020 11:53:36
Salah and Firmino are the 2 highest paid players, wouldn't be a bad idea to cash in on them at the end of next season and have a front 3 of Mane Werner and Dembele (if the loan works out) need to build the next team soon so if Klopp does leave in 2024 he will leave a team at its peak.

04 Jun 2020 13:56:08
ed, do you know any contingencies that need to happen in order for there to be room for dembele? is he viewed as a shaqiri replacement/ rotational player, or an option to come in should one of mane or salah choose to move on?

{Ed002's Note - I would not expect him to be joining Liverpool as I said. If he did, and if Werner were to join, then a non-HG player needs to leave as there is only one slot for a non-HG player available right now. Personally I am doubtful that Liverpool will look to progress their interest in him.}

04 Jun 2020 17:12:59
Ed with that in mind mate with you expecting us to not follow up our Interest, is it a case of us just considering our options and testing the waters? Did we ask Barcelona the question or not?

{Ed002's Note - I explained months ago that Liverpool enquired after a price. Liverpool have to consider options for additions and replacements - that is all it is. Right now I do not expect Dembele to be moving to Merseyside, but that might change over the coming months. Barcelona are working really hard to raise funds. Without and major sales Liverpool will not have significant funds to spend.}
