The signing of Moussa Dembele 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. Whether he will go on to make the same impact as his namesake remains to be seen, but for the time being, the young striker will fine tune his talents as a key member of the Under-18 squad.
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, Dembele 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.
