Chelsea challenge Premier League top clubs in race for 21-goals Frenchman

According to the latest reports, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been in contact with Lyon about signing Moussa Dembele.

The 22-year-old Dembele joined Lyon last year from Celtic in a £19.7m move and bagged 21 goals in his first season with the Ligue 1 side.

The form talented striker has again caught the attention of a host of Premier League sides and he is on the radar of four teams, according to Duncan Castles, speaking on the Transfer Window podcast.

Chelsea, United, Liverpool and Arsenal have asked Lyon to alert them if they decide to cash in on Dembele and if any offers come in for the striker this summer.

Lyon do expect to receive bids for Dembele in the coming weeks, but are keen to hold onto the Frenchman as they expect to lose several key players.

Chelsea have had a long-standing interest in Dembele having tracked the goalscorer since his days at Fulham, but their move for him depends on whether they can overturn their rapidly approaching transfer ban.

United too have been repeatedly linked with Dembele, with some French reports claiming the Red Devils lodged a £35m bid for the forward last month.
