Paper round-up: West Ham tipped to move for former Fulham star Dembele

West Ham are reportedly interested in Lyon’s former Fulham forward Moussa Dembele.

The Frenchman has been linked with a return to England for some time.

He has been linked with several Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, and is again being touted for a move back to London.

The Sun on Sunday say West Ham are set to offer £30m for Dembele if Lyon decide to sell him.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Telegraph reports that England boss Gareth Southgate has been impressed by West Ham star Declan Rice’s leadership qualities.

A number of Sunday newspapers report that Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi has flouted Covid-19 lockdown rules for the second time.

Photographs have emerged of the England international on a night out with his Chelsea team-mate Fikayko Tomori.

And Brentford are keen on Austria Under-21 international winger Husein Balic, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The newspaper say the Bees and Southampton want Balic and that there has also been interest from Celtic.

He plays for Austrian side LASK Linz and is supposedly rated at £2.8m.

Nicknamed ‘The Sprinter’, Balic is said to be one of the fastest players in world football and has apparently been clocked running 20 metres in just 2.75 seconds.
