Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has refused to give up hope of landing Borussia Dortmund striker Ousmane Dembele this summer, according to reports.

Barcelona have been linked with the 19-year-old in recent months following his promising performances so far this campaign.

In his 23 appearances in the Bundesliga this season he has bagged six goals and provided an impressive nine assists for his team-mates.

The Daily Mirror claims that Liverpool manager Klopp will try to beat Barca to Dembele’s signature with the German hoping to sign two youngsters that he can develop.

The Frenchman joined from Rennes in the summer where he scored 12 goals in 26 appearances, while he has also been capped three times for France.
