United Rival Arsenal For £15m Belgian
Man Utd have joined Arsenal in the race for £15m-rated Belgian attacker Moussa Dembele, who may leave Fulham this summer after refusing to extend his contract.
With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Man Utd are linked with Arsenal target Moussa Dembele.
Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the chase for £15m-rated Belgian attacker Moussa Dembele, according to the Mirror.
Dembele enjoyed an excellent season for Fulham last year, after being moved from a second striker role back in to the centre of midfield under Martin Jol.
This form has alerted both United and Arsenal, with the Mirror claiming Sir Alex Ferguson is confident he can land the 25-year-old this summer.
After keeping tabs on Dembele during the second half of last season, it’s understood Fergie has now stepped up his pursuit of the player with the Scot informing Fulham of his interest.
The Cottagers are not willing to let their star man leave without a fight and have slapped a £15m price-tag on the Belgians head. However, neither Ferguson or Arsene Wenger will sanction such a move for Dembele, who is believed to have only one year remaining on his current contract and has so far refused to sign fresh terms.
