Mohamed Bouhafsi is regarded as one of France’s most reliable and trustworthy football journalists. He is the chief editor of RMC Sport, the publication that recently sent Liverpool fans into a tizzy by claiming that the Reds are eyeing summer moves for Nabil Fekir and Ousmane Dembele.
The Lyon captain, who has scored 22 goals this season, is a force to reckon with and he has been a midfield marvel for the Ligue 1 outfit this season. He does not shy away from scoring goals and he could go a long way in filling the void left behind by Philippe Coutinho. Dembele, on the other hand, is a promising youngster with unlimited potential and a loan deal could be on the cards.
The Barcelona star, who has scored 2 goals and provided 8 assists this season, may have failed to make things work with the Catalan giants this term but his exploits from his time at Borussia Dortmund is enough to deduce that he has the makings of a great footballer.
A deal for either of these two players would not only be a massive statement of intent but would also help Liverpool solidify their squad ahead of the next season.
A recent tweet from Bouhafsi advertised his appearance on a talk show for SFR Sport 1 and the journalist confirmed that Liverpool have established contact with the two players.

Well, if there is any truth to either of these two rumours, it would be extremely beneficial for Liverpool. Regardless of how we fare in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, it is imperative that we begin the next season on a strong note and mount a solid challenge for the Premier League title and both Fekir and Dembele could boost our chances of doing so.
