Manchester United send scouts to watch French striker

Moussa Dembele tracked by United

Manchester United reportedly sent scouts to keep a close watch on Moussa Dembele during Lyon's 1-0 defeat to Saint-Etienne on Sunday.

The Mancunian giants parted ways with both Alexis Sanchez (on loan) and Romelu Lukaku during the summer but they decided against pursuing a replacement.

This has certainly hampered their performances this term with Marcus Rashford struggling for form while Anthony Martial has been on the sidelines with an injury for more than a month.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils are likely to pursue a centre-forward at the turn of the year and Dembele is one of the players on their radar for the winter transfer window.

The Frenchman was only a 60th minute substitute during the recent league clash against Saint-Etienne and he could not help his side overturn the one-goal deficit.

Still, he has been in sublime form since the beginning of the campaign and he is presently the second highest scorer in the French Ligue 1 with six goals from eight appearances.
