Liverpool are already preparing an offer for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele, according to a report.
The 24-year-old is yet to pen an extension at Camp Nou beyond the summer of 2022, meaning that La Blaugrana could be under pressure to sell him in January before he leaves for free at the end of the season.
Manchester City and Manchester United are both being tipped to battle for Dembele's services next summer, but Liverpool are supposedly looking to steal a march on their rivals in the race for the Frenchman.
According to TEAMtalk, Liverpool director Michael Edwards is already putting the framework together for an official approach, with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp 'in love' with the attacker.
The report adds that Liverpool will hope to commit Dembele to a pre-contract agreement next month, but Juventus, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have all been credited with an interest.
Dembele is yet to turn out for Barcelona this season due to a knee injury but recently returned to training alongside fellow long-term victim Sergio Aguero.
