In opposition to ongoing years, Dembele has been performing inadequately for the class chiefs, scoring just once this season.

Despite the fact that the 24-year old has gathered 16 appearances for the club, he has seldom been a piece of the underlying 11. Thusly, Lyon are enthusiastic about letting the exceptionally evaluated striker accumulate a few minutes out borrowed.

As indicated by Italian writer Matteo Moretto, Moussa Dembele is near joining the Colchoneros in Madrid.

The previous Manchester United exchange target is a fitting answer for Simeone’s crew.

Congratulations. Loaned out with no obligation to buy. Lyon has accepted it and it all looks right on track.”
