According to the same story, the Champions League runners-up could have voids to fill in their squad this summer so Liverpool FC are exploring the possibility of signing Dembele on a free transfer.
Sport reveal that FC Barcelona are becoming less and less confident that they’ll be able to convince Dembele to sign a new long-term deal with the Spanish giants ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Dembele scored one goal and made 13 assists in 21 games in La Liga last season.
