The transfer window closed on October 5th and Lyon were successful in retaining their stars like Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembélé and Houssem Aouar, despite the players being subject to interest from other European clubs.
Foot Mercato has a report about the former Celtic star and explains approaches made by a few clubs for the 24-year-old in the final stretch of the summer window.
It’s claimed the Frenchman was subject to ‘last minute offers’ and that’s when Tottenham Hotspur are mentioned.
According to the report, Spurs ‘tried their luck in the home stretch’ of the window to bring the attacker to north London.
However, their efforts didn’t yield any results because the Ligue 1 side ‘closed the door’ for the striker to leave Lyon.
José Mourinho wanted his side to sign a backup for Harry Kane and Tottenham achieved it by taking Carlos Vinícius on loan from Benfica.
The website also adds Paris Saint-Germain made an approach for Dembélé, but were left disappointed. Thomas Tuchel’s side finally took Moise Kean on loan from Everton.
Foot Mercato adds Dembélé is ‘currently lacking in confidence’ as the frontman has failed to score or register an assist in six league matches this season.
