Report: Fulham face fight to keep Moussa Dembele as Genoa make enquiry

Fulham Turnstiles

Genoa have made an enquiry to Fulham over the availability of teen sensation Moussa Dembele.

Fulham striker Moussa Dembele has been tipped for a bright future with the Craven Cottage outfit after scoring twice in 11 appearances last season.

The 18-year-old also boasts a record of three goals in six matches for France's Under-19 side, which has resulted in a growth of interest surrounding the player.

According to talkSPORT, Sky Sport Italia are claiming that Genoa have now contacted Fulham regarding Dembele's availability this summer.

The biggest selling point of this proposed deal is the prospect of playing top-flight football which Fulham cannot deliver yet as they face their second season in the Championship.

It will take a lot to keep hold of Dembele, who is looking out for his own best interests. He needs to be playing regularly and obviously wants to play at the highest level possible.

Unless Fulham can make a promise of gaining real momentum this coming season they're going to be fighting a losing battle to keep their talented youngster.

Dembele signed for Fulham when he was a 16-year-old with a number of clubs interested in the departing Paris Saint-Germain teenager. He soon became a regular in the Fulham Under-18 team. In 2013, Dembele signed his first professional contract with the English club.
