Lyon warn Juve over Dembele

Olympique Lyonnais have issued a hands-off warning to Juventus after they recently scouted Moussa Dembele.

Juve scouts were in attendance to watch Dembele help Lyon thrash SCO Angers 6-0 last Friday, with the France Under-21 striker having emerged as a possible alternative to Mauro Icardi.

However, the club’s President Jean-Michel Aulas warned in a tweet: “OL aren’t interested in offers for Moussa, who is the first symbol of OL’s new project!

“Neither Manchester [United] nor Juventus: a matter of principle, not price!”

The 23-year-old joined Lyon from Celtic last summer for €22m and has gone on to score 23 goals in 48 competitive appearances.
