Pundit warns €140m Barcelona duo against Chelsea, Liverpool moves

Barcelona pair Ousmane Dembele and Malcom have been told to snub a move to the Premier League by one pundit.

El Mundo Deportivo recently claimed that Barcelona are open to the idea of moving €41m summer signing Malcom on in January and – along with La Sexta – claims club officials have been in contact with Chelsea to offer him to the Blues as part of a fresh attempt to lure Willian to Catalonia.

Meanwhile, Don Balon stated that Klopp is becoming increasingly alarmed by his side’s struggles of late and has already turned his thoughts to the January transfer window and is targeting attacking reinforcements.

The Spanish outlet claims Klopp will ask Liverpool to sanction a move for Ousmane Dembele in January after it was suggested that Barcelona will allow him to move on if any club meets their €100m (£87.5m) valuation of the France winger.

ESPN’s Alejandro Moreno however believes the pair should stay and fight for their place at the Nou Camp.

Moreno was asked on Twiiter: “Should Dembele or Malcom force a move in January? Chelsea should be all over these two.” To which he replied: “I don’t think that either one of them should force a move, nor will force a move. They’re fine at Barcelona.”
