Atletico Madrid have confirmed the signing of Lyon striker Moussa Dembele on loan with an option to buy.
Dembele has showcased his goal-scoring credentials in France, having already done so in Scotland. Atletico lost a seasoned goal-scorer of their own making this month in Diego Costa, which left Diego Simeone in pretty dire need of a replacement.
Moussa Dembele was identified as the man capable of partnering Luis Suarez in attack and helping Atletico on their quest to win La Liga, where they currently sit top of the table.

Dembele is a proven goal-scorer, even if he has been off the boil this campaign. You have to think he will be licking his lips at the prospect of playing in La Liga. Spanish defences ought to beware…
