Manchester United have reportedly turned to Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as the man to answer their attacking woes this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have only scored more than once one time all season with that coming against Chelsea in their first fixture.
It was a match many admitted the scoreline had flattered United and that has been the case given they’ve since been rather poor.
Solskjaer’s thin squad has been made even thinner by yet another injury crisis and so the team find themselves in 12th place.
Investing in their attack is currently the most urgent matter and it seems the club are ready to do so this January.
According to the Daily Record, the Red Devils have made contact with Dembele’s representatives as they look to secure a January move. It’s believed he’s keen on a move and Lyon are attempting to hold out on up to €80m.
Completing deals in the winter transfer market is notoriously difficult but Solskjaer has no other choice if he wants to arrest his side’s poor decline.
Dembele has impressed wherever he’s gone so he could turn out to be the right signing but €80m does seem to be a bit excessive for his services.
