Although Fulham striker Moussa Dembele harbours ambitions to play for former club Paris St-Germain in the future, it is understood that another Premier League club is hoping to sign him this summer. The Express reports that L’Equipe claims Liverpool are very much interested in the talented striker.

The 19-year-old is out of contract with Slavisa Jokanovic’s men at the end of this season and appears to be planning for life away from the club. The Whites are currently involved in a Championship relegation battle, but surviving is unlikely to be enough to tempt Dembele to stay.

The Frenchman moved to the club in 2012 when joining from PSG where he had come through the ranks. He is currently in his fourth season and has played under a series of different managers. It remains to be seen if Laurent Blanc will be his manager in the future, but reports suggest Jurgen Klopp could be his manager in the next campaign.

In the January transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur came very close to signing the highly-regarded front man on a permanent deal. However that deal broke down as Fulham wanted Dembele to immediately return on loan for the remainder of the season to help them avoid relegation. That was what happened when Spurs signed England-sensation Dele Alli from M K Dons last season.

Dembele has scored 14 goals for Fulham thid season but it is certainly their defensive shortcomings which is why they are in the current league position that they are in. He is clearly set for a bright career in the game, and if Klopp has anything to do with it, then perhaps it will really take off at Anfield next season.
