Man United and Chelsea to go head-to-head for Moussa Dembele this summer – Mirror

Moussa Dembele impressing with Lyon

Moussa Dembele is currently plying his trade in the French top-flight with Lyon.

The 23-year-old had previously impressed in Scotland with Celtic, before moving to France in the summer of 2018.

Lyon are believed to have paid just shy of £20m for Dembele.

The France under-21 international has since gone on to rack up 79 appearances for Lyon.

In those 79 ties, the former Fulham forward has scored 38 and assisted 12.

Dembele is having a particularly fruitful 2019/20 campaign, netting 18 and assisting six in 33 appearances across all competitions for Les Gones.

Man United & Chelsea eyeing Moussa Dembele

Dembele is currently contracted to the Ligue 1 outfit until the summer of 2023.

But the Lyon hitman could well be on the move in the next transfer window.

According to the Mirror, two Premier League clubs are set to go head-to-head for Moussa Dembele in the summer.

Those outfits are understood to be Manchester United and Chelsea.

Chelsea were linked with a move for Dembele in December of 2019.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas then claimed that there had been offers for Dembele, but Aulas was quite adamant that none of the players that Lyon wanted to keep would leave in January:

“Moussa Dembélé will not leave because he wants to stay to win something with Lyon.

“There have been offers for him and for other players but none of those that we want to keep will leave in January.” As quoted by talkSPORT.

But, as per the above-linked report from the Mirror, Dembele could be allowed to depart Lyon in the summer.
