Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites interested in Moussa Dembele

Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites interested in Moussa Dembele -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs interested in signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to a report from French outlet Foot Mercato (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Career so far

A product of the youth system at Paris Saint-Germain, Dembele first arrived in senior football at Fulham before making his name north of the border as a prolific Celtic frontman.

The powerful former France Under 21 international netted 51 goals in 94 appearances for the Scottish giants before returning to France in 2018.

Since then, the 25-year-old has spent time on loan at Atletico Madrid but found his best form with his parent club, directly contributing to 85 goals in 144 outings for Lyon.

Heading steadfast towards the final 12 months of his deal in the south of France (Transfermarkt), Dembele could be set for a return to the Premier League this summer…

The latest: Spurs mentioned

As per Foot Mercato, translated by SW, Tottenham are cited among a host of clubs believed to be keen on signing the 59 times capped ex-France youth starlet.

The report claims that Manchester United, Arsenal, Sevilla and multiple Italian clubs are interested in the centre-forward whilst Spurs are ‘still there’ having previously been linked.

It’s stated that the ‘door isn’t closed’ on the man dubbed ‘unstoppable’ by Barry Ferguson whilst tearing up the Scottish Premiership in Glasgow, and Lyon have priced their goal machine at €25m (£21m).

The verdict: Worth the risk

Despite only making two goalless appearances in the Premier League, Dembele has proven himself to be a relentless goal-getter in France and Scotland as well as a regular contributor in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.

Entering the peak of his powers, during 2021/22 the Frenchman scored 22 times and provided five assists in 36 appearances for Lyon, taking 2.9 shots and finding the target with 1.5 efforts on average per Ligue 1 game whilst earning an impressive 7.11 Sofascore rating.

Sharing stylistic similarities to star names such as Romelu Lukaku, Patrik Schick, Victor Osimhen and Erling Haaland (Fbref), it’s clear to see why both Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici would be eyeing up Dembele as a target to supplement and perhaps play alongside Harry Kane, particularly at the mooted affordable price point.
