Lyon forward Moussa Dembele - an alleged target for Manchester United - reportedly wants to return to the Premier League in the summer.

Lyon forward Moussa Dembele is reportedly keen to secure a return to the Premier League during the summer transfer window.

Since moving to Lyon in August 2018, Dembele has scored 40 goals from 76 appearances in all competitions, establishing himself as a key man at the French outfit.

However, according to Sky Sports News, the 23-year-old has indicated that he wants to spend another period in English football after beginning his professional career at Fulham.

The report adds that president Jean-Michel Aulas is prepared to give the green light to a sale, providing that Lyon receive a bid of £83m.

Although Manchester United are said to hold a strong interest in the player, the English giants may be against paying such a fee.

Chelsea have also been linked with an approach for the former Celtic man.
