Manchester United make official bid for Liverpool-linked Moussa Dembele

Manchester United make official bid for Liverpool-linked Moussa Dembele Just last week, Liverpool were linked with a move for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele but rivals Manchester United now look to be in pole position to sign the forward as they’ve made an official offer for him. As reported by Benjamin Quarez of Goal, United have made a bid worth around £40 for the French U21 international. Dembele, who has played on British soil before; representing both Fulham and Celtic, has been linked with a move away from Lyon for a few weeks and it looks like United are hoping to keep him away from other potential suitors by making their move.

Moussa Dembele is attracting interest from the Premier League’s top sides with Liverpool and Arsenal among the latest to make contact over a potential deal.

The Frenchman only recently signed for Lyon at the start of last season in a reasonably priced £20 million deal and he soon became a popular figure, scoring 15 goals in 33 league appearances in France.

According to reports from L’Equipe, as cited on the Mirror, Dembele has considered a move to the Premier League but remains happy at his current club.

“I’m happy to stay with Lyon next season, but we’ll see.”

Manchester United, who are also admirers, will look to add firepower to their attack ahead of the possible departure of main man Romelu Lukaku this summer.

Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has departed and Divock Origi is still facing an uncertain future at the club, despite his Champions League heroics.

Dembele is familiar with England having played in the Championship for Fulham. The 22-year-old certainly has a bright future ahead of him.

Barcelona want £94m for Ousmane Dembele.
Barcelona are reportedly looking for a fee in the region of £94 million to part ways with Ousmane Dembele this summer. Liverpool are among the teams to be linked with the player and now, as reported by the Mirror, Barcelona have named their price. The French international hasn’t quite lived up to his reputation in Spain since his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund. He was signed to fill the gap that Neymar left but things haven’t worked out as well as the club would have hoped and Liverpool may be prepared to take a chance on the wide player. It has been claimed that Dembele was offered to Liverpool, as Barcelona look to offload him.
