Premier League giants Manchester United are facing a crisis of sorts especially with regards to their forward department. They would definitely need to rope in a few more strikers in their team if they want to save the season. Although the Red Devils have been associated with a host of forwards like Mario Mandzukic, Moussa Dembele and Krzysztof Piatek, English media reports reveal that it is the French forward Dembele that they are too keen on drafting in.

According to a report carried by Mail, the French Club Lyon have quoted a price of as much as £71 million for Dembele. However, United are a bit reluctant to pay that amount at that moment. Manchester United thus are trying to be patient and not spending too much at a go.

Thus, United might go ahead with the Dembele deal in the next summer transfer window even if Lyon fail to reduce their quoted amount for their star striker. The 23-year-old forward already has netted six goals in eight league matches this season and it is his goal-scoring ability which has allowed Dembele to put such a heavy price tag on him.

With still some time to go for the next transfer window beginning in January, expect some more updates on this transfer saga.
