Manchester United are in dire need of a forward to improve their attack in the winter transfer window and once again, the name of Moussa Dembele is in the lime light.
According to Foot Mercato, Chelsea made an offer of 40 million euros to sign the French international but Lyon rejected the move. After that, Tottenham Hotspur tried their luck by offering Victor Wanyama but once again, the move did not convince the Ligue 1 club. Now, it is the turn of Man United, who intend to attack to sign the 23-year-old.
The French outlet have claimed that the Red Devils should go on the offensive and as per sources, Man Utd are preparing a move worth 50 million euros to hire the services of Dembele
Foot Mercato have further mentioned that the Old Trafford club tried to lure Timo Werner from RB Leipzig but failed and are now hoping to secure the signing of the Les Bleus striker.
Lyon have already rejected two offers as reported above, so, I’m not sure if the fee of 50 million euros would be enough to lure the former Celtic center forward. It must be taken into consideration that the French side value (The Record) their prized asset at around 80 million euros (£68million).
Dembele is in red hot form at the moment, he has netted two goals and provided two assists in the last two appearances in all competitions and overall, he has already netted 15 goals under the management of Rudi Garcia this term.
Before moving to France, the youngster excelled big time with Fulham and then moved to Scotland, where he won all the major domestic trophies with Celtic.
Man Utd have been inactive and highly inefficient as far as this January transfer window is concerned. McTominay and Pogba have been injured for some time, still, the Red Devils have failed to strengthen their midfield.
Now, with his top scorer out injured, Solskjaer seriously lacks quality and depth in the attacking third. Not to forget, he let Lukaku and Sanchez leave in the summer. The Norwegian manager must not waste more time and he must sign a top forward before the closure of the winter transfer window.
