Juventus turn to Lyon's Dembele

With Mauro Icardi increasingly implausible, Juventus are turning their focus towards Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, claim French reports.

According to Soccerlink, Juve sent scouts to view the forward when Olympique Lyonnais beat SCO Angers 6-0 in Ligue 1 last night.

The 23-year-old is seen as an alternative to Icardi, who Inter have no intention of releasing to their bitter rivals.

Dembele had also been a target for Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, but the Premier League transfer deadline has passed.

He’s made a stunning start to the season with three goals in two Ligue 1 games.

Dembele joined Lyon from Celtic last summer for €22m and would now cost at least €30m after 20 goals in 46 competitive games.
