Manchester United 'Keeping Close Tabs' On Former Celtic Striker

As they look to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool, there are likely to be plenty of comings and goings at Old Trafford this summer.

The Mirror reports that one of those joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in what will be his first transfer window as permanent Manchester United boss could be Moussa Dembele.

It's said that the club are "keeping close tabs" on the 22-year-old.

Dembele joined Lyon during the summer from Celtic on a five-year deal worth £19.7 million. He had spent a productive two seasons on Scotland after moving from Fulham.

So far this season, the forward has scored 12 times in Ligue 1 and added five more in the Champions League and domestic cup competitions.

It's also said that Arsenal are keen on the player.

"It's going to be survival of the fittest or survival of the best," said Solskjaer last week about what this summer will like at United.

"That's how ruthless we have to be.

"We need players here who are going to be able to take us forward. That means culture in the dressing room, what we do every single day here to make us challenge again."
