Moussa Dembele topping United’s winter shortlist

Manchester United have reportedly identified Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as the prime transfer target for the 2020 January transfer window.

The Red Devils decided to part ways with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku over the summer and this has left them with limited options in the centre-forward department.

Anthony Martial has struggled with a hamstring concern since the end of August and that has left the Red Devils with just Marcus Rashford as the senior striking option.

The England international did make a strong beginning to the campaign with a brace against Chelsea but he has since struggled to score from open play and has bagged just one goal from the penalty spot.

According to The Mail, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to recruit a new striker in January and Dembele has been earmarked as the leading target for the New Year.

Dembele has made a positive start to the campaign with six goals from just 10 appearances but he has recently found himself starting from the bench for Les Gones.

However, his position could change with the appointment of Rudi Garcia, who has recently replaced Sylvinho as the new head coach. United may require a bid of at least £50m to tempt Les Gones into a sale.

Rice wanted by the Red Devils in January

Manchester United are reportedly planning a £70m bid for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side were linked with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff during the summer transfer window but they failed to pursue a single midfielder before the deadline.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils are likely to go on a mid-season spending spree following their slow beginning to the campaign which sees them in the 12th spot.

It is added that a central midfielder remains one of their prime priorities and Rice has been earmarked as the main target ahead of the winter transfer window.

Rice was previously valued at around £50m but reports suggest that the Red Devils may need to offer at least £70m in order to tempt the Hammers into a mid-season sale.

Rice has not missed a single minute of the Hammers’ Premier League campaign this term and he has also emerged into a key performer for the England national side.
