West Ham have just been dealt a hammer Moussa Dembele blow as Aston Villa move into picture to seal ‘immense’ free transfer.
Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is a transfer target for West Ham and Aston Villa now, according to a report from Fotomaç.
Dembele is a proven goalscorer with 152 club goals to his name throughout his career. He would be a superb addition for West Ham, especially for absolutely no cost.
However, it seems as though the East London outfit could have our work cut out this summer…
Aston Villa deal West Ham Moussa Dembele Hammer blow
Fotomac claim that the Hammers will face strong competition from Villa for the former Celtic and Fulham front-man.
That’s really bad news for us – I feel like Dembele would have been the ideal summer signing for us, especially on a free transfer.
Former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers once labelled Moussa Dembele as an ‘immense’ striker (The Record).
The Frenchman has power and pace in abundance and is a really good finisher when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.
The Lyon striker would have provided Moyes with an entirely different option through the middle.
Aston Villa are flying high at the moment though, and may well prove to be a more attractive prospect to Moussa Dembele than West Ham.
Moyes will definitely need to sign another forward this summer with Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio both facing uncertain futures at the London Stadium, and Danny Ings having failed to impress thus far.
However, it seems as though the Scot could face disappointment in the chase for Dembele.
