It is being reported in the media today that both Arsenal and Liverpool are making a move to hijack Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to persuade Moussa Dembele to join the Red Devils this summer.
The Lyon forward is one of the more coveted players in European football and while United remain the front runners they now face stiff competition from us and the European Champions.
United are said to have already tabled an offer in the region of £40 Million and while that is a bit steep for us it does not mean that we are not in contention.
The only reason we would be looking to spend that sort of money on another front player is if we are about to lose one, which could easily be the case with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
If that is the case then I have to say I would welcome it, it would mean we land a player that would cost us less than we would receive for Aubameyang, so that is extra money in the kitty and an ideal replacement for the Gabon international.
Naturally, Liverpool would be very attractive and they can easily afford his fee so competition is indeed tight but the fact we are being linked with the 22-year-old is encouraging and shows that we are at least being ambitious which can only be a good thing.
