- Frankfurt interested in Lyon forward
- Muani expected to make big-money move
- German club looking to speed up talks
What is the news?
A report from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg has claimed that representatives of Frankfurt have held initial talks with the agent of Olympique Lyon striker and France international Moussa Dembele. The striker is set to leave Lyon on a free transfer this summer following the expiration of his contract. It is suggested that Frankfurt have already made contact with Dembele and that they hope to push for a deal within the next few weeks.
Frankfurt signed Kolo Muani last season and the forward has been a major hit at the Bundesliga club. His performances in Germany earned him a call up for the France national team and was in the team that featured at the 2022 World Cup. Muani’s breakout season earned himself the interest of several big European clubs and it is expected that the forward will make a big money move this summer.
What next for Frankfurt?
The German club is looking to speed up the negotiations with Dembele as the French forward could be a wanted man on this summer’s transfer market. The former Celtic forward is on the shortlist of various clubs, including Olympique Marseille, Napoli and several Premier League clubs.
