Moussa Dembele is one of a number of young players who have had to leave PSG to further their careers, and have managed to do so quite well.
Ahead of the French club’s Wednesday evening match against Celtic, L’Equipe take a look at Dembele specifically and the success his decision has led to.
Building his name with Fulham, it’s stated Brendan Rodgers had to fight off ‘concrete approaches’ from Everton, West Ham and Swansea in August. L’Equipe present that as fact rather than speculation.
Both Everton and West Ham were linked with a string of attackers, and at Goodison Park, Ronald Koeman made a point of voicing his worry over strikers before the end of the window.
West Ham managed to secure a deal for Javier Hernandez, but up at Everton a space was left and it led to Koeman’s exit, with David Unsworth continuing to stutter.
Dembele isn’t quite having a blistering season so far, with 6 goals for Celtic, but it’d be no surprise to see Everton return in one of the next two windows, as they still look to add a striker.
Rodgers will have to be persuasive once more.
