Man Utd have to agree signing of £68.3million forward this month – Opinion

Lyon and France striker Moussa Dembele

Manchester United still have not strengthened their squad in the winter transfer window and if the Red Devils do not act swiftly then it will not be shocking to see them finish outside of the top four again.

The Old Trafford club desperately lack quality and depth in the squad, especially in the strike-force department.

Transfer: Agent pushing to secure £60million star’s Man United move – Report

In the summer, Solskjaer opted to let Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave but the Norwegian manager did not replace them.

Now, Man Utd have lost their main man and top scorer Marcus Rashford due to a stress fracture. Therefore, the strike-force has to be strengthened before the closure of the winter transfer window this month.

Talking about Rashford’s injury, Solskjaer has hinted that the club are looking at options (loan options preferred) to improve the attack (The Mail).

In my view, the 20-time English champions should not look at short term fixes and must sign a striker, who would serve the club in the long run. Therefore, Man Utd have to agree the signing of Moussa Dembele, who is valued at around 80 million euros (£68.3million) by Lyon (The Daily Record)

We have been linked with Moussa Dembele (The Mail) and recently (Sky Sports), Kaveh Solhekol, reported that the French striker would like to play for Manchester United.

The 23-year-old has been in red hot form for the Ligue 1 club in the current campaign. In all competitions, he has so far started 25 games in all competitions and directly contributed in 20 goals (15 goals and 5 assists).

In the last league game vs Bordeaux, he scored a goal and provided an assist to earn all three points for Lyon. At the weekend, Dembele directly contributed in two goals to help his team beat Nantes in the second round of the Coupe de France.

The former Championship forward has already proved his worth in Britain with Fulham and Celtic and has the quality to largely improve Man Utd’s striking department.

In your view, should Solskjaer splash the cash to sign Moussa Dembele this month?
