The club are reportedly interested in a deal to sign the attacker this summer.

A new development has been made regarding Leeds United’s plans to strengthen their offense if they avoid being demoted from the Premier League this year.

What’s new with Moussa Dembele’s move to Leeds?
The Whites are one of several teams interested in a deal to sign Lyon center-forward Moussa Dembele this summer, claims Turkish source Fotomac.

According to the source, the French attacker is also being pursued by Premier League rivals Aston Villa and West Ham United, as well as Super Lig giants Galatasaray.

According to reports, the 26-year-old star, who will become a free agent at the end of the current campaign when his contract expires, is anxious to return to England to play in the Premier League where his career began with Fulham.

How has Moussa Dembele fared so far this year?
The Frenchman hasn’t played much for Lyon this season in Ligue 1, but his performances in 2021–2022 show that he may form a perfect partnership with Wilfried Gnonto, a current star for Leeds, by giving the Italian international someone who can convert the chances he creates.

In the French top-flight, the former Celtic marksman has scored three goals in eight starts but has been an unused substitute in their last five league matches.

However, his form in the previous campaign was terrific and the Whites could secure an exceptional striker if they can get him back to his best. Dembele plundered a whopping 21 goals and four assists in 25 Ligue 1 starts and showcased his ability to be a reliable, consistent, goalscorer in a major European league.

In total, the 6 foot 2 gem has scored a staggering 56 goals in 74 league starts for Lyon since the start of the 2018/19 season and this suggests that he has the potential to be a prolific player for Leeds if they remain in the Premier League.

The £70k-per-week forward, who was once dubbed “powerful” by ex-boss Brendan Rodgers, could form an exciting pairing with Gnonto, who has created three ‘big chances’ and provided 21 key passes in 14 top-flight starts this season.

At the age of just 19, the young Italy international could also take another leap forward and increase his productivity in the final third with more experience under his belt heading into next season.

Dembele has shown that he has the quality to be a prolific goalscorer if given regular game time and Leeds’ Italian winger has showcased his creative quality in limited starts in the top tier of English football.

Therefore, they could make for an excellent pairing as Gnonto’s creativity could allow the French striker to thrive in front of goal, which would then surely bolster the club’s attacking output next term.
