Euro Paper Talk: Liverpool dealt big blow in bid to land winger

A major Liverpool attacking target looks set to stay at Barcelona this summer, while a trio of Premier League teams are chasing Lazio star Felipe Anderson, acccording to Sunday’s European papers.




LIVERPOOL TARGET POISED FOR BARCELONA STAY

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu appears of have poured cold water on Liverpool’s hopes of signing winger Ousmane Dembele this summer.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been chasing the France star for some time and there had been rumours of the possibility of a loan move to Anfield.

However, it would appear that 21-year-old will be plying his trade at the Nou Camp again next season.


Bartomeu said: “[Philippe] Coutinho, Dembele are for us a big investment. They are very important players that we expect from them a lot.

“Coutinho probably in the last four months has been very active for the team. But Dembele is a very young player, a very talented player that we are, of course, expecting from him a lot. He’s been demonstrating during the season that he’s a good young player for us. But, of course, next season will be different.

“It’s not easy to play in Barcelona the first year because the model of football is quite different from the rest. But after one year I’m sure we are going to see Dembele and Coutinho at a very high level.”

The news will not come as too big a blow to the Reds, who are closing in on the £70m signing of Lyon attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir.
