Atletico Madrid have officially signed Moussa Dembele from Lyon.
The signing was confirmed on the official twitter handle of the two club websites last night after which Atletico Madrid revealed their new striker.
The news comes as the first big transfer of the 2021 January transfer market but not a very surprising one.
Atletico Madrid had hit a snag with their long term striker Diego Costa who despite being a match winner on his day can be a handful for any manager given his eccentricity as a personality.
Costa eventually left the club just prior to the window opening after mutually agreeing terms but with clauses insert which will see him pay Atletico should he choose to join their rivals in this January transfer market.
Coming back to Dembele, the young French striker has set fire on Ligue 1 and is a name potentially known all around Europe.
He was on the radar of multiple clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and others but it is Atletico who has finally signed him.
He might not straight away get integrated into the first team given that Suarez and Felix are on fine form now.
