Manchester United and Chelsea handed Moussa Dembele transfer boost by Lyon Chief Executive Jean-Michel Aulas, according to Evening Standard via Le Proges.
Both clubs are battling it out for a final Champions League spot in the Premier League this season, and are set to do battle in the transfer window also.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is in the market for a new striker, being forced to rely on Tammy Abraham too much during the majority of this season.
United are in a similar boat, with Solskjaer forced to dip into the loan market in January signing Odion Ighalo to bolster his attacking options.
With a permanent goal-getter needed by both outfits, Lyon striker Moussa Dembele has proved he can score goals consistently at the highest level.
And Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas could have given both clubs a hint with this subtle hint:
“I am going to do everything to keep the players.
“But players who are programmed to play in Europe could want to go elsewhere because we don’t have European football.”
