Manchester United set sights on Lyon’s Moussa Dembele

Manchester United have reportedly turned their attentions towards Lyon star Moussa Dembele as they continue Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revolution.

The young striker has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past but nothing materialised for whatever reason.

However, United’s need for attacking depth is well documented and Dembele would certainly beef up an otherwise thin squad.

Perhaps Marcus Rashford‘s worrying performance as a striker has concerned Solskjaer enough to invest in the sensational Frenchman.

Anthony Martial has been sorely missed so maybe the young Englishman is better off causing damage from the left-wing.

According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils have scouted Dembele across the past three games he’s played as they aim to sign him in January.

It’ll definitely be difficult to get Lyon to let go of one of their key players halfway through the season but if the board are serious about backing Solskjaer then they need to deliver his targets.

Everyone’s already had enough proof that letting go of Romelu Lukaku without signing anyone was a disastrous decision and so there’s a need to make up for it.

Manchester United’s season could be decided by what they do after January and at that point it’d be clearer what needs to be done.
