Fulham striker Moussa Dembele attracting interest of Liverpool

Fulham striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly attracting the attention of Liverpool as Kenny Dalglish looks to strengthen his squad in the transfer window.

Dembele has been one of this season’s success stories in a Fulham side that are progressing well under Martin Jol. He has only notched one goal but his all-round play has been sensational, which has caught the attention of Dalglish.

Luis’s Suárez’s eight game ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra has triggered Dalglish to dip his toes into the transfer market. Options are limited currently in the forward department with Andy Carroll failing to justify the £35m Liverpool paid for him and Craig Bellamy more accustom to playing on the wing rather than in a striking role these days.

The Belgian international is generating plenty of interest from Premier League clubs because of the skill he possess on the ball but more so for his attitude without it – his work rate is second to none and would fit right into the philosophy at Anfield.

Signed by Mark Hughes in a £5m deal from AZ Alkmaar, where he played a huge part in their 2009 championship winning side, Dembele’s game is hugely suited to the hustle and bustle of the Premier League and with his talent would be an asset for any team looking to push on for a European spot.

Martin Jol isn’t keen to sell however, holding the player in high regard and going on record as saying that “He’s better on the ball than any other number 10s I know.”

Liverpool will need to pay well over the odds to get a bid accepted, probably in the region of £15m, but considering the talent Dembele possesses he could be worth every penny.
