Premier League heavyweights, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool have all come forward to express their interest in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to the recent reports in England
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a stellar maiden season with the French powerhouse, netting 21 goals across all competitions since his £19.7million arrival from Celtic last summer.
Dembele’s astonishing performances for Les Gones have alerted the Premier League giants, who are looking to bring him back to the English top tier in the upcoming transfer session.
All four of the aforementioned clubs have made contacts with Lyon to ask about the player’s availability, but Jean-Michel Aulas seems determined to keep hold of his star forward.
There’s no doubt that the Ligue 1 outfit can get a substantial amount of money should they opt to part ways with Dembele, but with several other first-team members heading towards the Groupama Stadium exit, the French striker could be forced to stay.
Faced with a potential loss of one of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gunners are exploring the market to fill the possible void in the attack.
Meanwhile, the Blues are trying to find a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain, who has failed to live up to expectations following his winter arrival from Juventus.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, see Dembele as a perfect replacement for the outgoing Romelu Lukaku, who may join Serie A side Inter Milan.
With Daniel Sturridge’s career at Anfield approaching its end, the Reds are in urgent need of a new forward to help Roberto Firmino in the final third.
