Liverpool enter race to sign Fulham wonderkid Moussa Dembele as striker reveals his dream move

Teenage French striker is on Jurgen Klopp's radar but this week admitted he would be keen for another crack at making it big with PSG

Transfer chase: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Fulham's Moussa Dembele

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign highly-rated Fulham starlet Moussa Dembele after it emerged the striker was dreaming of a move back to Paris.

The 19-year-old has been in superb form for the Whites this season by rattling in 12 goals in 36 league appearances for a team struggling at the wrong end of the table.

Dembele’s contract at Craven Cottage is due to expire in the summer and the Frenchman has knocked back the club’s attempts to broker a new deal.

Tottenham came within a whisker of luring him to White Hart Lane during the January transfer window before a transfer fell through.

However, Premier League clubs remain interested in the striker and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are the latest in a long line of rumoured suitors for the teenager.

Sources in France claim the German manager sees Dembele as a perfect addition to his part of his Anfield revolution for next season.

Dembele though is dreaming of a return to Paris Saint-Germain, the club he left to join Fulham in the summer of 2012, if the big spenders are looking for a new forward.

"I know that some players have gotten their chance since, like Jean-Kevin Augustin, but I preferred to leave and try my luck elsewhere."

Only Burnley at the top of the Championship table have scored more than Fulham this season ahead of Saturday’s six-pointer with MK Dons.

Fulham have two important players, but it’s a team sport,” Whites boss Slavisa Jokanovic said of Dembele and strike partner Ross McCormack.

“It would be a problem for them too if we started with nine players and two short at the back.

“I don’t expect one or two players are going to fix the situation. It needs everybody.

“Everybody knows Moussa and Ross are quality players, but the goals they scored haven’t made an easier situation for us.

“We need a nice balance. Maybe if we score fewer, we can concede fewer.”
