Manchester United need to strengthen their strike-force in the January transfer window after selling and not replacing Romelu Lukaku in the summer.
The Red Devils have been linked with French international Moussa Dembele and lately a well-known Sky Sports reporter have made interested comments about the Lyon star.
Speaking to the Transfer Window Show (Sky Sports), Kaveh Solhekol claimed that Man Utd are interested in the former Celtic striker, who would like to move to the Old Trafford club. He said:
“There’s a couple of players they are looking at: one is Moussa Dembele at Lyon. He would like to come to England but the problem is Lyon don’t want to sell him this month. That is going to be a difficult deal to do, although I think he would like to play for Manchester United.”
Back in October, The Daily Record made a similar claim and reported that the 23-year-old, who is valued at around 80 million euros (£69million) by Lyon, is keen on signing for Manchester United.
Dembele proved his talent in the Championship with Fulham before moving to Scotalnd, where he won every major prize in the country with Scotland.
He has been impressive for Lyon as well. In the current campaign, so far, the Frenchman has netted 11 goals in 17 Ligue 1 starts. Last weekend, he scored the decisive goal against Bordeaux to earn all three points for his team.
United lack firepower and should not wait for the summer to strengthen the team. In your view, who should United sign to improve their strike-force?
