£136m ace Liverpool and Chelsea want to sign urges to ‘turn to training on time’

As he told ESPN, Steve Nicol has urged Liverpool and Chelsea transfer target, Ousmane Dembele, to ‘train on time’ before even thinking of moving away from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old is out of contract at the Nou camp in the summer and there is no sign yet that he will sign a new deal, with Liverpool legend Nicol finding it ‘strange’ that ‘so many teams’ want to sign him. .

Given that Dembele is a free-transfer, or will soon be, it is understandable why clubs are queuing to add him to their ranks as there is no transfer fee involved.

But the way the France international has conducted himself at the Nou Camp doesn’t quite go down with Nicole, who thinks he should sign a new contract with Barcelona and settle himself.

“I think he should come to training on time,” Nicole said. “Then get to the meetings on time and lower your head. Do what he hasn’t been doing in Barcelona for four and a half years, and that’s a good game.

“For any team to look at Dembele and to see the five years he has at Barcelona, ​​where suddenly, with three months to leave his contract, we see what he is capable of. And everyone stands up and takes notice.

“That should be a concern to me. If you’re going to pay someone more than £150 a week, you need to know what you’re getting. You don’t want to gamble with players.

“So, I find it strange that there are so many teams after him, at the same time, if I am him, I am staying at Barcelona. The problem with him is that he wants more money and they are not ready because their Don’t have it. If he has the brain, stay there and produce what he’s going to produce for the second half of the season.”

Who will sign Dembele?

Back in January, there was even talk of Dembele going for the exit door, with Barcelona eager to either move him elsewhere or sign a new deal – he didn’t. did.

To no one’s surprise, before the second half of last season, Dembele struggled in the colors of Barcelona, ​​but gave his best until the last …

Of his 21 La Liga matches, he made 13 assists, only 15 starts and 11 assists since January.

Somehow, on the one hand, he has shown what he is capable of and why Barcelona paid £136 million for him in 2017 (BBC Sport), but on the other, is he someone who can be trusted? Is?

Well, time will tell for the dazzling winger because if the teams at the top do so, they won’t hesitate to put that big contract on the table for him.
