Man Utd eyeing move for 23-year-old proven Ligue 1 goalscorer

Manchester United could renew interest in signing of Lyon striker and rumoured Chelsea transfer target Moussa Dembele, according to the reports.

The 23-year-old forward has been a big hit in the French top-tier and has also previously shone at Fulham and Celtic.

According to L’Equipe, the 20-times English champions are keen on battling their bitter Premier League rivals Chelsea for Dembele’s services this summer.

This follows a recent report from the Sun claiming that the Blues were interested in Dembele and French club have slapped £60million price tag on his head, while Don Balon recently claimed Man Utd had cooled their interest in him to focus and the Blues were the clear frontrunners.

£60m could end up being a bargain for both these teams, who surely need to make addition to their offensive end.

The 20-times English champions have signed Odion Ighalo on loan this winter, however, will likely want a more reliable long-term option to provide competition with Marcus Rashford.
