HYS: Is Dembele worth the £85m Liverpool are prepared to spend?

On paper, everything is going perfectly for Liverpool as they sit second in the Premier League table, two points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s team remain unbeaten in the top flight, but they have lacked a creative flair on the pitch.

Liverpool certainly have the players to cause serious damage to defences, but they have not quite clicked just yet.

In order to solve that problem, it seems that a high-profile figure at Barcelona is being targeted.

According to The Sun, the Merseyside outfit are prepared to set a new club-record fee by offering £85m for Ousmane Dembele.

The 21-year-old is in his second season at the Camp Nou, and he has certainly shown in glimpses that he has the potential to become a world-class star.

However, there have been concerns over his discipline, which has seemingly resulted in Dembele not getting regular game time.

Liverpool’s current most expensive footballer is defender Virgil van Dijk, who signed for the club in a £75m deal in January.

Considering how vital the centre-back has become to Liverpool, would spending £85m on Dembele be justified?
