Liverpool & Barcelona linked with stunning swap.

Liverpool are interested in FC Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann and are open to the possibility of exchanging him with Sadio Mane.

Griezmann is unhappy with his situation at Camp Nou as he does not feel like an important player under Ronald Koeman, and could seek an exit.

Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of the World Cup winner and would love to have him in his squad.

The Reds, however, are in a difficult financial situation and would not be able to fund the transfer. Therefore, they are willing to offer Mane in exchange, and Barcelona are willing to consider this option. [Diario Gol]
