After opening the scoring in Celtic’s eventual 7-1 defeat to PSG last night in the Champions League, French striker Moussa Dembele has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League giants Manchester United, according to the Guardian.

The Red Devils had their own European struggles last night, registering a shock 1-0 away defeat at Basel. The worrying thing for manager Jose Mourinho is that star striker Romelu Lukaku has seen a huge downturn in goal scoring proficiency since the beginning of the season, netting just once in his last five league games.

While the Manchester club do have the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic nearing a return from a long term knee injury, it appears that they are looking to strengthen their front line in January.

With that in mind they have turned their attention to Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, who has been quietly impressive in Scotland. The French forward has registered four goals and three assists so far this campaign in the Scottish Premier League, and last season he bagged 32 goals in all competitions.

At just 21 years of age Dembele is a hugely exciting prospect who already has a keen eye for goal, and he could provide the perfect long term replacement for the ageing Ibrahimovic.
