Manchester United reportedly place Lyon forward Moussa Dembele at the top of a six-man shortlist as they consider new arrivals in the upcoming transfer windows.

Manchester United have reportedly placed Lyon forward Moussa Dembele as a priority transfer target.

Having parted ways with each of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to make additions in the final third of the pitch.

While the Norwegian is also keen to sign players in other areas, the Daily Mail suggests that United regard the signing of Dembele as top priority.

The former Celtic man has contributed six goals from 10 outings in Ligue 1 and the Champions League during the current campaign.

However, the Frenchman still has just under four years remaining on his contract, leaving Lyon in a strong position regarding the player's future.

United would likely have to part with at least £50m in order to tempt Lyon into a sale.
