Dembele was signed for a colossal 33.5 million euros by the La Liga side in January as a replacement for Diego Costa. However, he’s failed to settle into his groove at the new club with him yet to score or start for his new side ever since seeing a behemoth transfer.
COVID and injuries have both acted as bottlenecks to his life in Spain with Dembele seeing his playing time reduced to only four substitute appearances. The striker will be looking forward to settling at the club during the ongoing international break as he looks to spur his side towards the La Liga trophy.
Atletico Madrid are currently only four points clear at top spot in the league. The club has squandered a runaway lead to see both Barcelona and Real Madrid breath down its necks off late.
Dembele will be aspiring to emulate his form at Celtic for Atletico Madrid as well as the club scours for goal scoring options on the pitch.
