Manchester United keen on signing Dembele

English Premier League giants Manchester United are monitoring Lyon striker Moussa Dembele ahead of a possible summer move.

According to the Mirror, United are seeking to improve their attacking options and have been impressed by the impact that Dembele has made at Lyon.

Arsenal is also keeping tabs on Dembele, who has scored 17 goals in 40 appearances for Lyon this season.

Dembele, who previously played for Celtic and Fulham, has much time on his side to develop further given that he is only 22 years old.

United are all ready to call upon Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford up front, while Anthony Martial is also capable of leading the line if required.

Bolster

However, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bolster the options available to him. United are currently in fifth place in the Premier League, while they are trailing 1-0 to Barcelona going into the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Paul Pogba scored two penalties as Solskjaer's side secured a 2-1 victory against West Ham on Saturday. United face Barcelona away on Tuesday before returning to Premier League action four days later with a trip to take on Everton.
