Borussia Dortmund duo reveal why they rejected Liverpool.

Borussia Dortmund striker Ousmane Dembele has revealed why he rejected a move to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp tried to sign Dembele when he was at Rennes but the Reds couldn't seal a deal for the 19-year-old who eventually signed for Dortmund.

"I saw Klopp in Paris but I told him I had made up my mind to sign for Dortmund," Dembele told FourFourTwo.

"I told Claudio Ranieri the same thing."

Christian Pulisic also declined a move to Anfield, according to widespread reports.

"I have respect for Klopp and I know him - he was very welcoming to me here - but I was never really thinking about going to Liverpool," Pulisic said.

"Dortmund have given me everything. If I work very hard here I will play and I love this club."
