Manchester United have launched a 45million euros bid for Lyon’s Moussa Dembele, according to reports in France.

Dembele only joined Lyon last summer in a reported 22m euros deal from Celtic, but he could be set for a move away from the Parc Olympique Lyonnais after just one season.

The France U21 international has managed 15 goals in 32 Ligue 1 appearances this season and French reports claim United have now submitted a bid for Dembele.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring in a number of new faces over the summer and is focusing on youth, with Swansea’s Daniel James also understood to be close to a move to Old Trafford.

It seems as if Solskjaer is keen to bring in 22-year-old Dembele but United may have to raise their offer to convince Lyon to sell.

Dembele is under contract at Lyon until 2023 and therefore the French club are in a strong position in regards to negotiating a fee.
