According to reports, Manchester United is interested in signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele. Further report from France also reveal that the French side will be willing to allow the player leave in January if a sufficient offer comes.

Express Sport understands that Dembele is now a top priority signing for the club as our chances of striking a deal for Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic is uncertain.

Lyon had previously been reluctant to sell Dembele when approached by the club during the summer, but have now changed their position. They will do business if the money on offer is good enough to bring in a top-level replacement.

It is claimed Lyon have already been in touch with Olivier Giroud’s representatives regarding a possible return to France.

Demebele has scored seven goals in 10 Ligue 1 appearances this season and has caught the eye of Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
