Summer transfers: Spurs want a £51k-a-week striker with 21 goals last season


Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur are competing with Arsenal and Manchester United for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to FootMercato, informs the HITC.

FootMercato have reported that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal all are keen on securing services of the former Celtic striker.

The report in the French news outlet has claimed that Lyon could sell the £51,000-a-week (SalarySport) striker for €25 million (£21.27m), although The Daily Mail have claimed that Dembele is valued at £25 million.

In our view, Lyon striker Moussa Dembele would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

For £25 million, Spurs would get a 25-year-old who would be able to make an immediate impact at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and has European experience.

Harry Kane is the best striker at Tottenham, and Son Heung-min has established himself as an important source of goals for the North London club.

Dembele is a more ‘natural striker’ than Son, and the chance to work under Antonio Conte at Tottenham could be tempting for him.

The striker has also just completed a brilliant season and scored more goals in Ligue 1 than Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Premier League.

Dembele scored 21 goals and gave four assists in 25 Ligue 1 starts for Lyon this season.
