Man Utd still tempted to make move for the Lyon 24-year-old French forward

By | January 1, 2021

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskajer seems to be a  huge fan of Moussa Dembele and are still tempted to make a move for the Lyon attacker.


The 24-year-old has managed to found back of the net 34 times for Lyon in 86 Ligue 1 and Champions League games since the start of 2018-19.

However, French forward has yet to get off the mark in 10 appearances this season and the Red Devils were believed to have cooled their interest.

According to the Manchester Evening News, though, the 20-times English champions have not ruled out bringing in the Frenchman next year.

Dembele would qualify as a homegrown player at Man Utd, having come through Fulham’s academy before spells with Scottish giants Celtic and Lyon.

West Ham United have also been rumoured with an interest in French forward and ready to rival Man Utd for his services.

Meanwhile, Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is reportedly still a long-term target for Manchester United.

The France international was heavily linked with a loan switch to the 20-times English champions over the summer, however, the deadline passed with the World Cup winning forward still at Camp Nou.

Former Dortmund forward has been involved in all but two of Barca’s nine games in all competitions this campaign, founding back of the net twice and providing one assist for Ronald Koeman’s side.

There remains rumours surrounding his future, though, with an extension on his current contract, which ends in the summer of 2022, thought to be unlikely.
