Manchester United have made an opening bid worth more than £35million for Moussa Dembele.
The 22-year-old has scored 23 goals in his first season for Lyon and is attracting interest from a number of Europe’s top sides after the summer transfer window opened.
Dembele, who played for Celtic before moving to Ligue 1 last summer, has been a long-term target for United.

And now reports in France suggest that United have put in an offer for Dembele as they look to rebuild Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
The striker would fit in with Solskjaer’s model for signings this summer.
He is young, like fellow targets Dan James and Sean Longstaff, which seems to be Solskjaer’s preference for this summer.
Dembele’s form has led Lyon to third place ahead of their final game of the season against Nimes on Friday night.
