Moussa Demebele has knocked back the chance to join West Ham this month, Football Insider can reveal.

The Lyon striker is one of multiple striker targets for the London club after they sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax on Friday in a £20million deal.

A source with knowledge of Dembele’s situation has told Football Insider the player has made it clear he does want to sign for West Ham or any other club in the current window.

The 25-year-old instead wants to stay at Lyon and try and help them challenge for the title and a place in next season’s Champions League.
