FOOTBALL – OL Mercato: A surprising deal proposed to Lyon in attack

OL Mercato : Olympique Lyonnais has received an offer for Moussa Dembele. The Lyon striker is interested in a Premier League club.

OL Mercato : A club offers €12 million for Moussa Dembele

Olympique Lyonnais started its preparation with a success. On Saturday, the OL dominated Bourg-en-Bresse (4-2). Alexandre Lacazette was named captain and scored a goal in the success of the Gones. Like the former Gunner, Moussa Dembele scored against this modest opponent. While Peter Bosz is considering the possibility of using these two center forwards, a Premier League team could thwart his plans. According to the Sun, Southampton is interested in Dembele. The Saints, 15th in the Premier League last season, would already be on the offensive for the 25-year-old striker. An offer of 12 million euros would have already been transmitted for the transfer of Dembele.

Dembele towards a return to England?

The future of Moussa Dembele is subject to speculation at Olympique Lyonnais. The center forward finished the last season as the top scorer of Lyon. He scored 22 goals and provided 5 assists in 35 games during the last season. With the return of Alexandre Lacazette, a departure of the Lyon number 9 remains a possibility. A transfer this summer remains possible as he has only one year left on his contract with the Rhone club. For the moment Jean-Michel Aulas seeks to complete the extension of Rayan Cherki. The contract of the 18-year-old striker also expires in 2023.

Courted by Southampton, Dembele could sign his return to England if he joins the Saints. Trained at PSG, the striker of the Gones has already defended the colors of Fulham with whom he played two games in the Premier League. It remains to be seen whether Jean-Michel Aulas‘ club is willing to sell its striker. Which had been recruited for 22 million euros in 2018. His current market value is estimated at 20 million on Transfermarkt.
