United fans could welcome a new goalscorer as soon as the winter transfer window commences if reports making the headlines in Europe are something to trust.
This is because many media outlets are linking the Red Devils with a move for Ligue 1 top scorer Moussa Dembele and they claimed that the Premier League side are in talks with the striker’agent over their chances of signing him in January.
According to Duncan Castles, United representatives have traveled down to France to have one-on-one discussions with the player’s agent over the availability of the 23-year-old star during the winter window.
“I can tell you there has been contact between Manchester United and individuals close to Moussa Dembele to assess the player’s interest in the move and to work out what the cost would be in terms of salary,” he said.
The well-known journalist also revealed that the club’s hierarchy is more than willing to know Lyon’s price tag on Dembele as they wish to capture the Frenchman as soon as possible.
Duncan told Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast that: “And also, to get a feel for what it would take to get him out of Lyon. Dembele has been identified by United as a player who could be a top level center-forward down the line.”
This is definitely a smart move from the club’s board members who seem ready to help bolster Solskjaer’s attacking frontline who have just five goals in seven League games.
