OL: Moussa Dembélé is a favorite of Jean-Pierre Papin.

Former French national team striker Jean-Pierre Papin said to Le Progrès that he is a fan of Olympique Lyonnais forward Moussa Dembélé. The 25-year-old, who has scored 21 goals and given five assists in 35 appearances this season, is a favorite of the former OM forward.
“This forward approach appeals to me. You have to play for a beast like Dembélé up front, which was not done enough in the first half of the season.
He is intelligent, powerful, and possesses all of the attributes of a modern striker; his chances/goals ratio is higher than in past seasons, and he is more influential for his team,” said Jean-Pierre Papin, who also believes the Frenchman should stay at OL next season.

Dembélé has signed a contract with the Gones until June 2023.
