There has been plenty of joking and laughing ever since Fulham were linked with Moussa Dembele a few weeks ago.
For the childish amongst us this is simply hilarious. As Fulham already have a Moussa Dembele on their books and two players with the same name in the squad will just be the funniest thing ever.
Perhaps Martin Jol has been reading today’s Sun who claim the more famous Moussa Dembele is a target for Real Madrid and just felt it was easier to replace him with a player of the same name.
A Fulham announcement is expected in the coming days after the Cottagers agreed a compensation fee with Paris Saint Germain for 16-year-old striker Moussa Dembele.
With PSG splashing their cash on the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Demebele was always going to struggle for first team opportunities and is regarded as one of the best young strikers in France.
Typically, Dembele has been compared to Thierry Henry as one of his assets is explosive pace.
Footage of Moussa Dembele from a PSG Under-17 match against Kashima Antlers in February can be seen below. Includes a hat-trick for the youngster which will have Fulham fans licking their lips.
