Report – Lyon Will Entertain Offers For Striker Newcastle Scouted Last Month


In mid-January, Newcastle went on a scouting mission to watch Bordeaux take on Lyon. It was reported that they were there to watch Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, who had a goal and an assist in the match, which Lyon won 2-1.

Sport Witness is citing an article from L’Equipe that claims Lyon will look to cash in on the striker this summer.

According to the report, Chelsea had a £36m bid for the 23-year-old rejected last month. However, they never came back in with an improved offer, which reportedly shocked the Ligue 1 club.

Lyon had already made moves to offset the loss of their star striker last month. They brought in Villareal’s Karl Toko Ekambi on loan with an option to buy and also Le Havre’s Tino Kadawere. Kadawere was sent back on loan to finish the season with Le Havre but will join Lyon in the summer.

So it looks like the French club will listen to offers for the striker this summer. It could be that a bid for around £40m will be enough to prise the Frenchman away from Lyon.

He’ll have plenty of suitors with Chelsea and Manchester United interested in the player. However, he would be quite an addition upfront at Newcastle, having scored 19 goals in 35 appearances this season.

It’s unlikely, but with money to spend, Newcastle could make a run at Dembele in the summer.

    Dembele is another one that the club could have got but for some reason decided not too!!

    He was going for 8 million originally but Fulham wanted to keep him for that season Spurs declined it and then he ended up going to Celtic for FREE!!!

    Bills

    I highly doubt anyone on the blog needs evidence you’re a liar and you come on the blog to disrupt any discussion you don’t like.

    You should write a book

    “How to make friends and influence people on a blog”

    You’d sell atleast 1.

    Excellent,
    Both kids and the wife are fast asleep, despite it being pissing down with rain all day we’ve managed to visit a national park and spend a bit of time round the pool in between un-seasonal monsoons. I’ve finally managed to catch up on one of my favourite pass times which is nufcblog.com. So bants, shame on you for having a go at me for keep blogging and ffs Bills what is your point?

    Lol Tom, I deny all knowledge!!!

    Actually, I was going to summarise that article on here but decided not to – it was reproduced in full in The Mag and quotes were elsewhere.

    Interesting that .co.uk big up the journalist’s credentials as a Pulitzer Prize winner. Not the kind of guy to make stuff up.

    How many hearts is Bill’s expecting?

    Isnt he the one that said this blog gets minimal traffic?

    No doubt when it only gets 4 hearts that’ll be his excuse.

    Seriously.

    You don’t like the articles on the blog, have called both Neil and Ed.

    You don’t like the posters, or 99% of their opinions.

    You liken the posters on the blog to members of the Nazi party.

    Why post?

    Why not start a blog of your own where you can create the content and decide who and what can be posted?

    About the hearts thing, could we please petition we get rid of them. The blog done just as well without then. Personally i think they’re out of order. There’s simply no need for them. I’ve been saying this from day one.

    Moanster and Seamus are walking down the road and Moanster has a bag of cream cakes in his hand.
    Moanster says to Seamus “If you can guess how many doughnuts are in my bag, you can have them both.”

    I do believe there was an initial interest shown by the Saudi group , and maybe some discussion did take place a few months ago but i honestly think Ashley has moved the goalposts again.
    Ashley might want to sell the club,but i doubt he is desperate.
    I think he will wait , bide his time until he gets a crazy offer which he simply cant refuse, bit the the AC deal for 35M, ridiculous offer which he could,nt refuse.

    The wife came on a few weeks back and asked if anyone thought there should be any changes.

    I said a thumbs down icon.

    If we can say we like a post, we should be able to say we don’t.

    I’d rather take it away than have 1 option but not the other.
