There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Moussa Dembele in the last period.
British source claim that Newcastle United have joined the hunt for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.
The France international was signed by Lyon in August 2018 from Celtic for a fee of 22 million euros. The 23-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
In 88 appearances for Lyon, Dembele has managed to score 42 goals, and create 13 goals for his teammates.
The 23-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in France.
Moussa Dembele has been one of the star players for Lyon this season.
Steve Bruce is looking to shore up his attacking options and Lyon’s Dembele happens to be a target. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
The France international is a dynamic striker, who possesses good technical skills and ball control.
There is no doubt that Dembele will take Newcastle United’s attack to a different level.
According to the report, “Newcastle United have joined the interest in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele. Dembele has emerged as a potential target for Manchester United. He will be allowed to leave Lyon at the end of the season and he wants to return to England where he started his career at Fulham. Dembele has scored 13 times this season and injuries to key players meant Lyon were unwilling to let him leave in January. But Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas will let Dembele leave in the summer, though he will have to settle for less than his €100m (£83m) asking price. And Newcastle will be prepared to compete for the striker under the club’s new owners.”
