Moussa Dembele chase hots up as Manchester United, City and Chelsea mull over bids

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea will all consider summer bids for Fulham’s Moussa Dembele, claim reports. Cut-price: Fulham’s Mousa Dembele (Picture: PA) The Belgian international is out of contract at Craven Cottage in 2013, and is already being chased by Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. But Dembele’s impressive form for Fulham, who currently occupy ninth place in the table, has alerted the rest of the Premier League’s big guns. Now all six sides are mulling over offers in the region of £10million, according to Goal.com, and with Fulham unable to compete with the wages on offer elsewhere, Cottagers boss Martin Jol seems destined to lose the 24-year-old. Dembele was signed from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar for £5million in 2010, and although he originally was bought as a striker, Jol’s decision to play him as an attacking midfielder has certainly brought its rewards. Dembele has scored only seven goals in 71 appearances for Fulham, but is recognised as playing a key role in Clint Dempsey’s current hot streak, which has seen the American net 23 times this term.
