Aston Villa: Moussa Dembele linked with January move

Aston Villa: Moussa Dembele linked with January move -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa could look to make a move for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the January transfer window, according to a new report which has emerged.

The Lowdown: Dembele continues to shine

The 26-year-old made a name for himself during his Celtic days, proving to be a star at Parkhead after scoring 51 goals in just 94 appearances.

Those performances eventually earned Dembele a move to Lyon in 2018 and he has continued to shine in France, netting 69 times in 151 matches for his current club.

An exciting rumour is now doing the rounds which suggests Villa could be eyeing up the Frenchman, who currently sits on 139 senior club career goals.

The Latest: Villa eye up Dembele move

According to Jeunes Footeux [via Sport Witness], Dembele is expected to leave Lyon in January, and the Villains are in the mix to acquire his signature.

They are ‘visibly ready’ to make an offer for the striker, with Steven Gerrard ‘not at all satisfied’ with his team’s attacking resources in their current form.

The Ligue 1 ‘would not be opposed’ to getting money for Dembele, and Villa have the funds available to snap him up.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Could be a great prospective signing

Dembele could be an outstanding prospective January addition for Gerrard’s side, with former Celtic colleague Leigh Griffiths once hailing him as ‘exceptional‘.

Goals have come at a premium so far this season for Villa, with just six scored in eight Premier League games, and the 26-year-old could reinvigorate Gerrard’s attack.

Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?





The fact that Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings are already at Villa Park does mean that it could be tough to keep everyone happy, but if Dembele comes in and proves to be an upgrade on the current Villans duo, those two would simply have to accept it and strike to get better.
