Dembele set to leave AZ Alkmaar

Moussa Dembele is keen to leave Dutch club AZ Alkmaar this month as Italian clubs have been put on alert.

The 22-year old Belgian international was linked with Chelsea last summer but has now been offered to Serie A clubs such as AC Milan and Juventus according to his agent Patrick Vervoort.

"Last summer he (Italian agent Gabriele Savinoto) offered him to clubs and this has happened again. At the moment there is nothing concrete," Vervoort told Sportweek.

"If the conditions are okay, AZ should co-operate. They would be more (likely) to co-operate than in the summer, as AZ didn't want to let any of their players leave because of the Champions League.

"Moussa still eyes a transfer. He wants to make a next step. If you are with a certain club for a long period you need a new environment.

"Moussa is currently in his fourth season at AZ and this counts for him as well."
