Man Utd scouts posted to watch Lyon striker Moussa Dembele

Manchester United had scouts posted to watch Lyon striker Moussa Dembele on Sunday night.

They dispatched staff to take in Lyon's game against Saint-Etienne and saw the former Celtic man left out of the starting line-up by under pressure manager Sylvinho, who has frequently rotated his forward line this season, says the Daily Mail.

Dembele did come on in the second-half and managed to hit Lyon's only shot on target of the game.

There's a risk for Lyon that United would have the encouragement to push for a cut-price offer in January if they move for Dembele with him dipping in and out of the side.

This despite the 23-year-old being just one goal behind Ligue 1's current top scorer Victor Osimhen.
