Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly ready to go to war to bring a £135m Barcelona attacker to Anfield this summer.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, the German boss is intent on signing Ousmane Dembele from the LaLiga champions in the upcoming transfer window.

The Champions League finalists unveiled the shock signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho on Monday, with the Brazil international officially arriving on July 1 in a deal believed to be worth £44million.

However, Klopp is not content with just Fabinho, and is hoping to add an exciting winger to his ranks before the 2018-19 campaign.

The report claims that Klopp is personally fighting a battle with Liverpool’s transfer committee about a move for Dembele, who arrived in a €150m deal from Dortmund last summer.

Mundo Deportivo goes on to claim that Klopp wishes to contact Dembele and his mother about a move to Anfield, who could apparently be available for £88million.
