No further Barcelona offer for Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool's match with Hoffenheim

Dembele has since been suspended indefinitely by the club for his actions.

But Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has denied those claims and insists there has been no progress in talks between the two clubs. "I really understand everybody is interested in it, but at this moment I'm not thinking about it", he said. Barcelona is not one step closer to signing Dembele.

'I cannot explain what he is telling me.

'Nothing has advanced, not even by a millimetre'.

Dortmund have hit back at those claims, however, with Watzke also taking the opportunity to aim a dig at the club following their comprehensive Spanish Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid.

Barca are ready to reinvest most of the £200million that they received from the sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain into the squad.

He told Spanish television channel TV3: "Coutinho and Dembele are both close".

"I will answer questions but I'm not in the vehicle, on the way to this press conference, thinking, 'If they ask this question, what can I say?', because I have to think about the (training) session in a few minutes".

In their biggest statement of intent yet, Liverpool have rejected another bid from Barcelona for attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho with the La Liga outfits massive offer - believed to be in the region of £119mil - for the Brazilian being brushed off by the Anfield outfit.

But judging by Watzke's words a deal for the 20-year-old France global is still a long way off.
