At the end of his contract with OL in June, Moussa Dembélé is still very popular in the Premier League, where his profile is appreciated.
Serial scorer for Olympique Lyonnais last season, Moussa Dembélé is less successful in 2022-2023. With only 2 goals and 1 assist in all competitions, the former Celtic Glasgow striker is in the image of his club: in the midst of a crisis of confidence. Obviously, Moussa Dembélé will not extend in favor of OL and will leave the Rhone club at the end of the season at the latest… if not this winter. Six months from the end of his lease, OL will not retain Moussa Dembélé in the event of a good offer in January, although Laurent Blanc tried to relaunch him when he took office at the end of the year. 2022. According to information from Foot Mercato, Everton is ready to try the Moussa Dembélé bet this winter, the Toffees urgently needing reinforcements in attack during this month of January.
Everton fully on Dembélé this winter?
Like OL, Everton is a club in crisis this season. Nineteenth in the Premier League, Frank Lampard’s team remains on four defeats and a draw in the last five league games. A terrible series that pushes leaders to recruit during this winter transfer window. A scorer is wanted and the profile of Moussa Dembélé appeals to the staff of the English club, which could take action in the coming days to recruit the striker from Olympique Lyonnais. Initially, the leaders of Everton were more likely to wait until the end of the season to recruit Moussa Dembélé at zero euros, free of any contract. But the club’s terrible series in the league finally pushes Everton to move this winter in the Moussa Dembélé file, while the Toffees have already suffered the refusal of FC Lorient for Dango Ouattara and are preparing, in parallel with the Dembélé file, to open the track of Rennes striker Kamaldeen Sulemana, who has been little used by Bruno Genesio since the start of the season.
