According to Goal.com, several of the big Premier League teams are now in the race to sign Belgium International Moussa Dembele after the Fulham star admitted that “I want to play at a top club”.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool are all considering a move for the Fulham star after his impressive start to the season (which included his terrific performance against Manchester United on Saturday) only added to the interest that Goal.com claim Dembele had attracted earlier this summer.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson had claimed he had completed his business in this transfer window but after reports over the weekend suggested that Nani could still be leaving Old Trafford, United’s dealings this summer may not be done yet if they are to follow-up on Goal.com’s reported interest in the 25-year-old midfielder.
Dembele has spoken about the possibility of joining a bigger club, Goal.com quoting these comments the midfielder made to Sport 1:
“Personally, I would like to go to the top. I think every player wants that. But I have the confidence to say that I want to play at a top club one day.”
Though in an attempt to quickly appease Fulham fans who might be considered that Dembele could still make an exit from Craven Cottage before Friday’s transfer window closes, the Belgian was quick to reiterate that if nobody actually makes an offer he can’t go anywhere;
“[Fulham] is a good team. We have had two good matches now so it also makes sense to play here.
“As long as there is no bid, nothing happens.”
