A report in France claims that Moussa Dembele is wanted by a number of Europe’s top clubs this summer.
The forward left Celtic in 2016 to join Lyon and has become one of the most prolific centre-forwards in Ligue 1.
That’s brought the player to the attention of some of Europe’s giants, and with a big sell-on clause inserted in the deal that took the player back to France the powerbrokers at the Celtic Park outfit will be paying keen attention.
Manchester United and Chelsea were mentioned with January moves, and now it’s reported three more big hitters are keen.
According to Foot Mercato, Arsenal have been eyeing up a move for Dembele if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Atletico Madrid are also understood to be keen, while there is an enticing option in Ligue 1.
Paris Saint-Germain have lost Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, leaving Mauro Icardi as the only out-and-out forward in their squad.
They’re also said to be keen on a deal for Dembele, who would provide competition for Mauro, but the capital club have not yet opened talks.
Lyon chief Juninho admitted last month: “If we receive offers we’ll analyse them. Moussa had a good season, he still has room for improvement, he brings us a lot and scores a lot.”
Moussa also helped Lyon to reach the Coupe de la Ligue final, which will take place on July 31 versus Thomas Tuchel’s side.
That could prove crucial for Les Gones after failing to qualify for next season’s UEL due to the season being cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
