Ronald Koeman issues contract update on Liverpool transfer target

Ousmane Dembélé still wanted at the Camp Nou

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman provided a key update in the contract situation involving French international Ousmane Dembélé today.

The Dutch headmaster, who continues to stave off a potential sacking at the Camp Nou given the frustrating situation the Blaugrana currently reside in, made it plain that for former Borussia Dortmund and Stade Rennais winger is very much wanted in Catalunya moving forward.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Dembélé remains the target of a desired contract renewal in the Catalan capital.

Perhaps frustratingly, Koeman also made mention of the fact that the club do not have any solidified plans in how to tackle the situation involving Dembélé should the 24-year-old Frenchman decide not to renew is terms at Barcelona.

Dembélé, who is still valued at €50million per Transfermarkt, is in the final year of his deal with the La Liga giants and is currently the subject of yet another fitness concern as he goes through his recovery period for a hamstring injury that has kept him out action all season thus far.

Liverpool linked with French winger

Premier League giants Liverpool are reported to remain interested in securing the services of Ousmane Dembélé once his contractual terms with Barcelona run out this summer, with the Reds eyeing additional attacking reinforcements on the flanks to offer increased depth behind Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané.

As per the club’s official website – which cited MailOnline – Liverpool have reportedly begun contract negotiations with Dembélé to sign the French winger on a free deal next summer as of 13 October.

But with Ronald Koeman adamant that Barcelona wish to retain his services and look to involve him heavily in the team as one of a number of key attacking players once the French international is fit, both clubs look set for a tug-of-war to convince the Vernon-native where the best pathway for his rejuvenation is located.
