Lyon star Moussa Dembele is reportedly on the shortlist of strikers at Premier League giants Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, Dembele is on the shortlist of strikers being lined up by Manchester United in the event that Romelu Lukaku leaves the club this summer.

Dembele has spent just one season at Lyon since his £19m move from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The French striker is the record sale made in the history of Celtic.

Moussa Dembele could replace Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United if the Belgian international leaves the club this summer.

Lukaku has been linked with a move to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan this summer at the request of newly appointed manager Antonio Conte.

Ex-Chelsea manager Conte is a big fan of Lukaku and the Italian tactician tried to sign the Belgian striker while he was at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United won’t mind selling Romelu Lukaku this summer as long as they recoup the money spent on his transfer two years ago.

The Red Devils spent £75m on Romelu Lukaku when they signed him from fellow Premier League club Everton in the summer of 2017.

He has scored 42 goals for Manchester United in his two seasons at the club.
