Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United are eyeing a move for one of the brightest young strikers in the top flight of French football according to the latest reports coming out of the British media.

Manchester United have struggled badly in attack at the start of this season and a move for attacking reinforcements is almost non-negotiable.

According to the Daily Record, Manchester United have made contact with Lyon striker Moussa Dembele with an intention to make a move for him next year.

Moussa Dembele is no stranger to Manchester United transfer links having been touted as a direct replacement for Romelu Lukaku in the summer.

With Lukaku closing in on a 74 million pounds move to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan, Frenchman Dembele was linked with Manchester United as the man to replace the outgoing attacker but nothing came out of those links.

Manchester United are back in the hunt for Moussa Dembele ahead of the January transfer window.

The Red Devils might need to spend as much as 80 million euros to sign him.

Ousmane Dembele has not been in very good form for Lyon this season after netting just once in 13 games.

As a matter of fact, Lyon have been disappointing as a team this season.
