Man United Apparently Looking To 'The Championship' For January Reinforcements

Man United Apparently Looking To 'The Championship' For January Reinforcements
By Mikey Traynor

You would have to expect that Manchester United are going to be active in the January transfer this year, as Louis Van Gaal's men are light of numbers in attack having let James Wilson leave the club on loan.

Also sure to be a factor in any potential transfer business is the staggering amount of injuries the club's players picked up in 2015, and Sky Sports reckon Louis Van Gaal is having a close look at a Championship striker in Fulham's Moussa Dembele.

No, not the Spurs midfielder, that's Mousa Dembele with one 's'.

Manchester United are monitoring Fulham striker Moussa Dembele ahead of a possible bid in the January transfer window.

Sky sources understand United are keeping tabs on Dembele, who has scored eight goals so far this season for the Sky Bet Championship side.

The 19-year-old was thought to be close to signing a new contract at Craven Cottage and has represented France at five age group levels.

At just 19 years of age, you would imagine that Van Gaal would be planning for the future with the signing of Dembele, but then again that is what many thought about Anthony Martial.

While this news may be a tad underwhelming for United fans who were hoping for a big name signing, the description that concludes Sky's article will surely have them buzzing with anticipation:

Sky Sports' Football League expert Andy Hinchcliffe picked Dembele as one of his top 10 Championship players so far this season and believes he has Premier League credentials.

It will be interesting to see if a move is made when the window opens next month, but in the meantime Manchester United scouts, and presumably some fans, will have their eye on Fulham's next few games.
