West Ham United are reportedly weighing up a mid-season move for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

The 24-year-old had an impressive 2019/2020 season with Les Gones where he scored 24 goals from 46 appearances in all competitions.

He has yet to open his goal tally for the current campaign where he has made just four league starts to date.

According to The Sun, Les Gones are willing to offload Dembele in January, should any club meet their price tag of around £30m.

Hammers boss David Moyes is said to be a big fan of the Frenchman and the club are said to be considering a winter approach.

The east London outfit could, however, face competition from Manchester United, who were monitoring Dembele's progress last term.

The Red Devils signed Edinson Cavani on a free transfer earlier this summer, but they are still on the look for another marksman.

Dembele is understood to be a huge admirer of the Mancunian giants and reports have claimed that he could find hard to turn them down.
