Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Lyon striker Moussa Dembele and are thinking about a summer swoop for the Arsenal target, reports say.
According to a British tabloid newspaper the Sun, the Red Devils are interested in the former Celtic player.
Manchester United are reportedly tracking the Lyon star ahead of the summer transfer market as they intend to reinforce the attack. Moussa is also on the radar of the Red Devils’ rivals Arsenal.
The player was formerly a part of Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain but found success first at EPL club Fulham. The French star though didn’t stick with the Cottagers for long and chose to move across to Scotland, signing for Celtic. Dembele ruled the Scottish top division and his 2016-17 season was what brought the star much fanfare and interest from elite clubs.
Moussa chose to stay the year after at the club and had a wildly successful campaign. But, the start of the 2018-19 season saw Dembele being snapped up by Ligue 1 side Lyon. Returning to France, this time as a senior-team star, he has had a decent campaign by a striker’s standards.
The 22-year-old star has 20 goals thus far this season and has a return of 12 goals and five assists in Ligue 1. With the campaign drawing towards a close and the summer transfer market approaching, Arsenal and Manchester United are both tracking the player.
Arsenal have Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in their forward line. It could be intriguing as to why manager Unai Emery would want to add another natural striker to the squad, given the Spaniard will be provided with a tight kitty to splurge on essential additions.
As for Manchester United, the report claims that Romelu Lukaku’s future is up in the air and the club may have to replace the Belgian star in the squad in the summer market.
