Barcelona start contacts for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele

Barcelona have started contacts about a potential deal for Lyon forward Moussa Dembele, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

Ronald Koeman’s assistant, Henrik Larsson, has been in touch with the 23-year-old to discuss a move to Camp Nou.

Dembele is mentioned as a possible replacement for Luis Suarez, who has been told to find a new club.

It appears Barca are exploring several options to replace Suarez, with contacts also in progress for Maxi Gomez of Valencia.

With Lionel Messi determined to quit the club, it could be that Barca have to sign more than one forward.

Dembele has impressed for Lyon since his €22m move from Celtic in 2018, proving himself both in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

In his 92 appearances for OL, Dembele has scored 44 goals and delivered 13 assists.
