Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is said to be on Manchester United radar yet again.
French forward has been consistently linked with various Premier League clubs since his time with Celtic.
Player’s representative have claimed almost all European club as his suiters, however, interest from sides such as Manchester United and Chelsea are the only ones that are believable, even if exaggerated at times.
FootMercato, have claimed on Monday afternoon that Manchester United are ‘preparing an offer’ for the player.
At the start of the season, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made it clear he wanted another striker brought in, however, the Red Devils were not able to secure any credible signings.
Now that Marcus Rashford is injured, getting a striker has suddenly become even more urgent, which has likely led to these claims.
United are reported to be scouting Dembele at the weekend against Nantes, and ‘should go on the offensive’.
FootMercato claim that they have been informed by the player’s representatives that Manchester United want to make the first offer of €50m plus bonuses for the 23-year-old.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has maintained that there is no way he will be selling the player in January, but then he’s said similar about other players before they’ve left.
