Plenty of Liverpool fans are tearing their hair out today as it has been reported that a potential deal for 23-year-old Ousmane Dembele would not happen this summer.

Football writer Kevin Palmer has claimed on his Twitter page that any rumours linking the young Frenchman and Liverpool are not accurate.

Palmer went onto say that while Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer, there is next to no chance of the deal happening this summer due to finances, prompting a lot of Liverpool fans to express their discontent.

Should FSG be under any pressure?

Definitely not

They need to spend

Yes, not good enough

In fact, some fans were so annoyed by this rumour that they even demanded the exit of their owners and the Fenway Sports Group. Quite remarkable considering that these owners have taken them to a Champions League title and most likely a Premier League title within the next few weeks.

The main issue is that the club does not allegedly have the finances to make the deal happen, which seems to have really angered some supporters.

Here are some of the replies below…

The fact that Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League for the first time ever and that some supporters are still calling for the owners’ heads is probably a better representation of just how silly social media can be rather than an overriding sense of contempt from the Liverpool fanbase.

Nevertheless, a player such as Ousmane Dembele is clearly wanted within Liverpool as another option to Mane and Salah on the wing, and you can see why they would want him when players such as Lionel Messi say he has potential to be “one of the best”.

However, it looks like they will have to wait at least another year before they could potentially see him in a Liverpool shirt.
