Manchester United are reportedly keen to launch an assault on French Ligue 1 giants Lyon for their star striker Moussa Dembele.

This is according to one of the publications from Foot Mercato which stated that Lyon have slammed an asking price of €80m (£68m) on the player.

Moussa Dembele has scored two goals and two assists in his last two games in all competitions.

The Frenchman is the top-scorer at Lyon with 15 goals since the start of this season and he could be the man to replace the goals-coring burden on Marcus Rashford who will spend several weeks on the sidelines as a result of a back injury.

Chelsea were the first club to make a bid for Moussa Dembele in this January window but their €40m bid was turned down by Lyon.

Tottenham Hotspur also tried to sign the Frenchman in a swap deal that would see them take Kenyan international midfielder Victor Wanyama from the North London club.

The North Londoners were turned down by Lyon after they made that swap deal offer.

Manchester United are the latest club to make play for Moussa Dembele who could be the man to take the pressure off the club in terms of goals.
