Arsenal in Lyon contact for Atletico Madrid striker Moussa Dembele

Arsenal are eyeing Atletico Madrid striker Moussa Dembele.

The Telegraph says Arsenal have explored the availability of Lyon-owned striker Dembele - who is currently playing on loan at Atletico Madrid - and it is reported that he could be available for just £25million.

With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah's futures far from certain, Arsenal are looking to bring in a new striker.

Atletico, who have Dembele on loan until the season finishes, have an option to buy the Frenchman for around £30m this summer.

However there are doubts over whether Diego Simeone's side will make the move for Dembele following a tough season in the Spanish capital.

Dembele has been hindered by injuries since moving on loan from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon in January.
