According to a recent report by Foot Mercato, Manchester United are planning to make an initial offer of £43m plus bonuses to secure the signature of Olympique Lyonnais centre-forward Moussa Dembele. The same source has also mentioned that the Red Devils will face stiff competition from Chelsea in pursuit of the Ligue 1 hotshot.
Dembele’s Outstanding Record In The French First Division
The French striker has enjoyed another fruitful campaign in the French top-flight after putting in numerous eye-catching performances for Lyon so far. He has scored 15 goals and grabbed five assists in 29 games for Rudi Garcia’s side this term on all fronts.
The 23-year-old has averaged 2.1 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per match in the top tier of France (stats via whoscored).
Dembele has also played for France at various youth levels but is yet to earn his first senior call-up for his country. Maybe, moving to the Premier League could give him a bigger platform to highlight his worth as a prolific goal-getter at the top level which might be noticed by Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps in the future.
What Does The French Forward Bring To The Table?
Dembele is a quick and energetic centre-forward who can turn on the afterburners to beat his marker in the final third. He is quite effective at holding the ball up to get others involved in the attacking third of the field. The French sensation can read the game well, which allows him to make some well-timed runs behind the opposition backline.
Will Dembele Be A Wise Addition For Man United?
Furthermore, the Pontoise-born sensation is a consistent goal-scorer who has previously enjoyed a productive spell at Celtic. Therefore, he should not have any trouble settling into life in the United Kingdom. Dembele has all the skillset required to be a success story at Old Trafford, so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will do well to land him in the future.
With Marcus Rashford facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines and Anthony Martial struggling to find consistency, the Red Devils would be wise to make a move for the Lyon star before the end of this month.
