Anfield-bound? Liverpool Reps fly out to watch 'magnificent' £40m striker with 39 goals/assists in 44 games

Liverpool continue to be linked with a summer move for one of the SPL's top strikers.

On Friday evening, The Mirror reported:

"Liverpool will send scouts to watch Moussa Dembele during Sunday's Old Firm derby. The Reds are one of four Premier League clubs due to have representatives at Parkhead for Celtic's meeting with Rangers".

Recent transfer timeline:

* Jan 2016: Sky Sports reported that the Reds considered a January 'offer' for Dembele:

* Feb 2016: Further reports claimed that Liverpoo were still tracking Dembele, but faced stiff competition from Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man City.

* Feb 2016: When about his future, Dembele told reporters: "It's easy not to get distracted. I'm a calm guy and I don't let this get in my head. I don't really listen to what is said about me".

This is a refreshing contrast to Julian Brandt's weak-minded mewling about how transfer speculation is 'annoying' and may lead to his performances 'suffering'. Clearly, Dembele has the right mentality: water off a duck's back, and just gets on with it.

According to Reds legend Jamie Carragher 'magnificent' Dembele - who has 39 goals/assists in 44 games - is worth £30m-£40m, and although that seems excessive, it's definitely not beyond the realm of possibility.

In my view, Dembele - like Jamie Vardy - is a realistic, viable, obtainable target, and with Brendan Rodgers in charge at Celtic, Liverpool should (in theory) have a slight advantage over other teams. Worth pursuing?

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
