Prolific Ligue 1 striker linked with shock summer move to Man Utd

Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain joined Manchester United in the race to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to the reports.

The 23-year-old has been rumoured with a host of teams on the back of a season that saw him to found back of the net 22 times and provided seven assists in 42 games.

Chelsea and Man Utd are believed to be among those weighing up a move for the French forward, while Foot Mercato claims that the Gunners and PSG are also keen on striking a deal.

That could set up a bidding war for the ex-Fulham and Celtic attacker, who still has another three years left on his current deal at Lyon.

The Gunners are believed to have targeted French forward as a replacement forĀ  Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette should one of them depart from the club in the coming weeks.

PSG, meanwhile, are looking to fill the void left by club-record scorer Edinson Cavani who will depart from the Parc de Princess ahead of the next season.

Speaking last month, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas conceded that it will be tough to keep hold of French forward if big team come calling.
