According to a recent report by the Daily Star, Everton are hoping to seal a move to bring Olympique Lyonnais striker Moussa Dembele to Merseyside for £40m when the transfer window reopens in January. The same source has also claimed that the Toffees will face stiff competition from Manchester United in pursuit of the Ligue 1 striker during the winter transfer period.
Dembele’s Prolific Record In The French Top-Flight
The former Fulham frontman is currently one of the most prolific goal-getters in the top tier of France. He has made an entertaining start to this campaign after putting in some eye-catching displays in the French top-flight. The 23-year-old has netted six goals in his first ten outings for Lyon this term across all competitions.
Since joining from Celtic in the summer of 2018, the French marksmen has scored 26 goals and created six assists in 56 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants on all fronts. He also had an impressive record at Celtic Park, finding the back of the net on 51 occasions in 94 appearances for the Hoops.
Dembele has also played for France at various youth levels but is yet to register a senior international cap for his homeland. However, if he can continue with his decent goal-scoring run this season, then there is a slight chance that Didier Deschamps might call him up to be a part of the French squad ahead of the 2020 UEFA European Championships next summer.
What Will The French Sensation Bring To Goodison Park?
Dembele is a moderately paced striker, but that doesn’t stop him from dribbling with the ball out of tight spaces to wreak havoc in the final third. He can hold the ball up effectively and tends to win a lot of 50-50 aerial duels against the opposition defenders as he is a dominating presence up top. However, what makes the Frenchman such a special talent is his ability to score goals consistently at the highest level.
Is Dembele The Right Fit For Marco Silva’s Side?
It is no secret that the Toffees have struggled to score goals under Marco Silva’s tutelage this season. Hence, recruiting Dembele could solve their problems in the striking department. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Moise Kean and Cenk Tosun have all failed to live up to the high expectations of the Goodison faithful, so it’s high time for Silva to bring in some reinforcements as his Everton side are in danger of being dragged into the relegation dogfight this season.
Dembele has what it takes to be a success story at Goodison Park. The ex-Celtic talent will not only add more goals to the Toffees frontline but will also increase competition for places within Silva’s squad. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the French striker will be an excellent fit for the Merseyside outfit as he is precisely the type of player Everton need to turn their fortunes around for the better in the coming years.
