Manchester United have reportedly earmarked Lyon forward Moussa Dembele as a potential target to bolster their strike force during the summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is due to make significant changes to the squad at the end of the season and the striker's position is likely to be reinforced during the process.

According to L'Equipe, the Mancunian giants have already begun discussions with Les Gones as they seek to tempt Dembele from from the Groupama Stadium this summer.

Dembele only made the switch to Les Gones from Celtic last summer but he has been a good hit with 13 goals and four assists coming from just 29 league appearances.

He has more than four years remaining on his existing deal with the club but it is suggested that Les Gones would be willing to cash in on their marksman at the right price in the summer.

Aside from Dembele, Nabil Fekir also appears likely to head through the exit door with his contract expiring in 13 months' time. United's arch-rivals Liverpool are said to be planning a renewed approach for the playmaker.
