  Frank McAvennie urges Hammers to sign Moussa Dembele Former West Ham striker Frank McAvennie has told Football Insider that Lyon striker Moussa Dembele would be a “fantastic” signing for the Irons in the January transfer window. McAvennie also suggested the 24-year-old, who has been linked with a move to the Hammers, may have fallen out with his Ligue 1 club given his perceived decline in game-time this season. The 60-year-old said: “He must have had a fallout at Lyon because ability-wise you would put him in the team. Something has happened there because he was doing very, very well.

One of those potential moves is for Ousmane Dembele , with Manchester United still showing an interest in the Barcelona flyer. Dembele got his first taste of football in 10 months after he came on as a sub for Barcelona against Villarreal on Sunday evening, however, Ronald Koeman will have

Manchester United are willing to hold off signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the January transfer window, according to reports. Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas stood firm over Dembele ’s future in the summer and refused to sell the 23-year-old following interest from United and Juventus.

That position still remains but Barca will be keen to avoid losing Dembele on the cheap with his contract set to expire in 2022, if United considered a permanent move.

Barca are said to be working on negotiating a new contract with the Frenchman after his decision to reject an extension prompted the initial interest from United.

Manchester United still want to sign Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol. However, the Red Devils have seemingly not given up hope of taking the France star to Old Trafford before next Monday's transfer deadline.

Manchester United have been given hope of signing Ousmane Dembele with Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman refusing to confirm whether the winger was in his plans moving forward. United have been working all summer long on bringing in a world-class forward to strengthen their front line.

With Fati out for around four months, the Catalans will be reluctant to let Dembele leave the Nou Camp without having a replacement lined up.

Dembele signed for Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 in a staggering £133.5m transfer after the departure of Neymar but a string of hamstring and thigh injuries have played a part in preventing him reaching his potential.

The forward is said to have other clubs interested in signing him but Barca are looking for a fee between £60-70m.

After missing out on Dembele, United signed Edinson Cavani on a free transfer following his release from Paris Saint-Germain.

Marcus Rashford is United's leading goalscorer in all competitions with 14 goals, closely followed by Bruno Fernandes who is on 13.

Dembele has found the back of the net more times this season than Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Cavani, who currently have five goals between them.
