REVEALED: Man Utd Ighalo deal won't influence Dembele pursuit

Manchester United are yet to make an offer for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

United are monitoring Dembele's situation at Lyon and could make an approach in the upcoming transfer window, says ESPN.

United yesterday announced that they had secured a loan extension for Nigeria international Odion Ighalo that will see him remain with the club until January 2021.

But executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and co. are still on the look-out to bring another striker to Old Trafford to ease the burden on Marcus Rashford.

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is under consideration, but 23-year-old Dembele is still a target for the 13-time Premier League champions.

Dembele scored 22 goals and provided seven assists in 42 appearances before the Ligue 1 season was halted due to the Coronavirus.
