TOP STORY: Liverpool ready record move for Barca's Dembele

Liverpool are set to shatter their transfer record to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona, according to the Sun.

France forward Dembele joined Barca last summer but could be on his way out amid questions over his attitude, with the Sun saying Jurgen Klopp "wants him to boost his team's Premier League title chances."

Klopp is reportedly so keen to sign the 21-year-old that he will spend £85 million, eclipsing the £75m fee that brought Virgil van Dijk to Anfield.

The Sun says Klopp "is set to test Barca's resolve on a player they bought from Borussia Dortmund for £135.5 million."

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barca are concerned about elements of Dembele's lifestyle.

He was omitted from the squad for Sunday's defeat to Real Betis after missing training earlier in the week, but the club are reportedly reluctant to sell.

PAPER TALK (by Chris Borg): Mourinho and United set for barren January

If Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho thought he had endured a frustrating summer, January could be much worse, the Independent reports.

Mourinho wanted a new defender and continues to target one, with Inter Milan's Milan Skriniar and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld high on the list.

But the Independent warns that he "is set for more frustration as United currently look unlikely to sign anyone in the midseason window."

It adds that Mourinho "has been agitated by a failure to properly sit down with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to talk about targets."

And although his job does not appear to be in immediate danger, some in the United hierarchy "are said to be mindful" that he could leave at the end of the season.

The Independent says there are questions over some Mourinho signings, with the disappointing performances produced by Fred so far leaving him viewed as "a purchase that reflects a wider problem."

Spurs closing in on Cagliari star

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino wants new signings, and the Sun reports that the club "are set to splash £35 million on Cagliari's Nicolo Barella."

With Mousa Dembele having suffered an ankle injury against Wolves earlier this month, Spurs want to bring in Barella to boost their midfield.

The Sun says Pochettino is hopeful that their bid will be enough, but Liverpool and Juventus are also interested in a player who has been compared to Steven Gerrard.

It adds that "Spurs are sparing no expense to land their man, despite Italian champions Juve having dropped out of the race."
