Liverpool target Ousmane Dembele allegedly stalling on new contract

Liverpool are going to have to make some decisive moves in the summer transfer window. The Reds have had a disappointing season in the Premier League and will need to reinforce the squad to challenge again. One exciting move could well be on the cards with reported Liverpool target Ousmane Dembele allegedly stalling on a new contract.

Front three reinforcements

The Reds’ attacking trio has been striking fear into the hearts of opposition defences in recent seasons.

However, this term has seen a lacklustre campaign for the front line.

Injuries throughout the squad have led to a chopping and changing in midfield which has disjointed the side’s build up play.

Therefore fewer chances are being created but the precious few which are being created are often going wasted.

We need to reinforce the front line in order to inject some competition for places and to allow rotation of the attack in order to keep players fresh

Liverpool target Ousmane Dembele update

The coming months are set to be full of reports of potential targets for spicing up the Reds’ attack.

One name keeps cropping up, last week Liverpool were linked with a move for Ousmane Dembele and not for the first time.

Fichajes claimed that the Reds are ready to go big for the winger’s signature, stating that he’s seen as a replacement for Sadio Mane.

According to Sport, talks of a new contract for the winger are not progressing.

What RTK has to say

Given that the winger’s contract expires in 2022, the Frenchman not signing a new deal in the coming months could push him to a summer exit.

Sport previously claimed that he is available for as little as £45m.

However, we would be wary of the move due to the winger’s worrying injury record.

If he’s available at the right price though, he could be worth a punt.
