Dembele wants Man United transfer

Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly keen on making the switch to Manchester United when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Frenchman has bagged 22 goals for Les Gones this term with 16 of those coming in Ligue 1, which was prematurely ended this week due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Manchester Evening News, Dembele has his sights on a Premier League move this summer and he would find it hard to turn down the Red Devils.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have recently changed to a strategy dealing with data analytics as they seek to pursue a new striker for the 2020/21 campaign.

RB Leipzig's Timo Werner has been identified as a target through the survey and it remains to be seen whether Dembele emerges as another suitable option for them.

Dembele, who has previously played for Fulham in the Championship, is likely to cost in upwards of £40m. He was the subject of interest from Chelsea earlier this year.
