Moussa Dembélé



The signing of Moussa Dembélé from Paris Saint-Germain was a huge coup for both Club and Academy - with the young Frenchman an undeniably exciting prospect. 

In sharing his name with one of Fulham’s biggest stars at the time, his arrival generated much interest in what was one of our most-talked about deals of the 2012 summer.

A player that can lead the line or play wide in a front three, the France youth international has pace to burn, skill in abundance and an ability to get in behind the opposition defence. Highly-rated in his homeland, Dembélé has great potential and committed his future to the Club when he signed his first professional contract in July 2013 until the summer of 2015.

The 2013/14 campaign began brilliantly for the striker as he scored goals for fun at Under-18 level, with his form soon earning him promotion to Kit Symons' Under-21 squad. He made the step up seamlessly, notching five goals in his first four matches for his new age group.

He then went on to play for Fulham's First Team, making his debut as a late substitute in a defeat at West Ham United in November 2013. He made two more First Team appearances before the 2013/14 season was out, also playing a key role in the Under-18s' march to the FA Youth Cup Final.

Finished the season with 23 goals in 17 league and cup appearances for Fulham's Under-18s.

The 2014/15 campaign saw him score his first senior goals for the Club when he hit a brace in our 5-2 defeat by Derby County in the Capital One Cup.
