Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is after a new striker this summer, despite having Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Odion Ighalo on the books at Old Trafford.
Moussa Dembele is highly-rated by the Norwegian, who has tracked the Lyon star since his time at Celtic.
But goals haven’t been a problem for United this season because of the form of their forwards.
Solskjaer, though, feels he needs more.
United thought about going after the Lyon star in the summer transfer window, only to end up focusing on their defence instead.
But Solskjaer remains keen on the 23-year-old, who has enjoyed a brilliant campaign for his club in Ligue 1.
Before the coronavirus crisis halted football across Europe, Dembele had struck 16 times from 27 league appearances.
And he’d put himself firmly on United’s radar in the process.
Now, however, Solskjaer has a problem.
It’s emerged that Chelsea actually have first refusal on the France international, with the Daily Mail reporting this on Sunday.
And with Frank Lampard a big admirer of Dembele as well, it may force his United counterpart into looking elsewhere.
