Transfer News: £10m Dembele Linked With Move

By on May 31, 2012

With the summer transfer window set to open, we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news. Today,  Premier League big guns are linked with Moussa Dembele.

Moussa-Dembele

Chelsea have joined Arsenal, Man Utd and Tottenham in the race to sign Fulham’s Moussa Dembele, if reports in the Daily Mail are to be believed.

VOdds

Following on from their capture of Eden Hazard, the Mail claim that the Blues are hoping to pair him up with his international team mate by bringing the £10m-rated Dembele to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Dembele has only one year remaining on his current contract and has showed no intention of signing an extension. This leaves Fulham boss Martin Jol in the uncomfortable position of having to either cash in now or risk losing one of his star players for nothing next summer.

The Mail report that Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are already tracking the 24-year-old, but the trio face stiff competition from European champions Chelsea.

Dembele is an exciting attacking midfielder who can play across the midfield or in support of the striker.

FT Verdict

Dembele is sure to be one of the hottest properties in the Premier League this summer. He was hugely impressive last season for Fulham and with only one year left on his contract, the vultures are circling.

I’m not convinced he’d be capable of holding down a first team place at Manchester United or Chelsea and he may feel there is too much competition at those clubs, so a move to Arsenal or Tottenham appears more likely.

    Having Dembele in chelsea squad, is never a bad thing.
    It will give the club a fortified bench brimming with potentials to create an atmosphere of competition in the team.
    And that will make us unpredictable.

    If i was mr Wenger i would be catching the bus across to fulham to get this man signed up. Just the type of player we need Ramsey is just not ready.

    Not good enough for the team that finished sixth, but good enough for those that finished third and fourth?
    Should I be feeling a little confused?

    Mr Wenger, bring quality players of Dembele, Dempsey, Afellay, M’vila and the Ajax man. Do something b4 RvP leave, or finish outside the top for next season. Thanks 4 the comitment of Varmelean to the club. I love Arsenal.,

Sagna koscienly vermalen gibbs. Midfield wuld be, podolski/walcott song/mvilla arteta/wilshere ox/gervinho/yahmolenko. Strikers wuld be, vp/ podolski nd giroud/doumbia. Gooners 4 life

    U all must b clueless aw will not sign anyone until after the euro’s, why buy now then they pick up a bad injury during the euros it’s crazy, likewise with van in my opinion I’d sell always good seeing new faces wen the squads not winning trophies, now use some common sense and have some patience

    Demba ba is not a bad signing…i wish CFC should sign him…..due to injuries of players,fatique,and there will be competition among players for regular starts

    Eden hazard, Hulk, Merin, Van dar veil,and additional attacker is all Cfc.need. Although Dembele ‘ll not be a bad signing…in as much as he can sit quite a bit on bench.

    A fantastic player like Dembele should be playing for Chelsea. To avoid fatigue, no player will be playing too many games next season. Remember Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas, Keita, Bousquet all in a team

    Dembele could play a a major role a Chelsea,to add the style of attacking football,we won the Champions league bt we were playin defencive style,we need Mata,Dembele,Hazard to add more attacking from the midlefield,Romeu or Mikel along with Essien can stick in the in the middle nd nutralises the game.Ivanovic,Terry,Cole,Luiz,Cahill,Bosingwa,Ferreira can do a rotational squad nd they can take care of the deffencive area

  24. Hector

    June 2, 2012 at 2:33 am

    forgot to mension Lampard,Mareiles,Ramirez in the middle,i might’ve named many players,cuz i ws focusing on the new players,Rotational squad is needed,if we take out danger player,we must take in danger player.or we don’t have to struggle if we hv injuries.
