Dembele open to Manchester United transfer

Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is open to the idea of joining Manchester United in the Premier League this summer.

The Frenchman has been with Les Gones since the summer of 2018 and he scored 24 goals from 46 appearances during the recent campaign.

According to Manchester Evening News, Dembele is not actively seeking a move away from Lyon, but he has not ruled out the prospect of changing clubs.

United are said to be long-term admirers of the former Celtic man and they had attempted to sign him during the 2019 summer transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still said to be eyeing a new striker to compete with Anthony Martial despite Odion Ighalo's loan extension until January.

Dembele has three years remaining on his contract with the French outfit and reports have previously claimed that he could be available for £40m.

His price, however, may have risen on the back of his match-winning brace against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final.
