Moussa Dembele

It has been hinted that French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon striker Moussa Dembele may not seek a move to English Premier League outfit Liverpool anymore in this summer transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit have been linked with a move to the star striker and it was suggested that they will be moving for him especially after learning that the star striker is also interested in the move.

But that will no longer happen because Liverpool have finally decided to settle with Belgium international Divock Origi after they were overwhelmed by his performance in the just-concluded season.

The Belgium international has not been a major part of the Liverpool team as he was used for bench roles for the most part of the season. Despite that, he saved the Reds team in a number of games and the UEFA Champions League final winning goal will not be forgotten in a hurry.

However, journalist Duncan Castles has dropped the hint that the Reds have made an enquiry for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe and that he could be the first signing they will settle for this summer window.

Dembele has impressed in his time with Lyon, scoring 20 goals in 45 games since completing a £20m switch from Celtic.

He will now be available to other suitors, knowing that Liverpool are not alone in the race for his signature.
