Everton will look to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele
Everton need to strengthen their attack.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Everton will look to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The France international only joined Lyon from Celtic in 2018 for 22 million euros and his contract runs to June 2023.
In total, Dembele has scored 26 goals and supplied 6 assists from 56 Lyon matches.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 23-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Moussa Dembele has represented France at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 57 caps and scoring 23 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Everton.
Moussa Dembele is a long-term target of Everton and could be a decent addition for Marco Silva’s side.
There is no doubt that Dembele will take Everton’s attack to a different level.
According to Calciomercato, “English Premier League outfit Everton are willing to compete some of the European powerhouses in order to sign French Ligue 1 side Lyon’s striker Moussa Dembele, as per Football insider. The 23-year-old is one of the hottest property in French football and has been attracting interest from the likes of Italian Serie A giants Juventus and English Premier League outfit Manchester United in the recent past. But as per the latest report, the Liverpool-based club are also interested in signing the former Celtic striker and are also willing to offer as much as €50 million for the player.”

Lyon are reluctant to let Dembele go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 23-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Marco Silva.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Everton.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Everton come calling for Moussa Dembele this winter.
