A goal-scoring crisis looms at large for Manchester United.
They might’ve scored a ton of goals in the initial dream run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but everything dried up after reality set in. Indeed, since the inspired Paris-Saint Germain game, Romelu Lukaku’s goal-scoring boots have also vanished.
The 25-year-old Belgian’s yet to score a goal since that eventful night in Paris and is getting frustrated with his situation at United. He’s voiced his ambitions to possibly move to play in the Serie A, as Solskjaer won’t really be hesitant at letting him leave.
United are looking towards striking options for the summer and might’ve found an apt replacement for Lukaku.
According to reports (via the Mirror), the Red Devils have their eyes on Olympique Lyonnais’ marvellous Moussa Dembele. Lyon’s £19.8 million signing had a breakthrough season in Ligue 1, scoring 13 goals from 29 appearances so far. He’s complimented Lyon’s terrific attackers perfectly, producing some special moments throughout.
Dembele’s excellent work in the final third’s allowed him to come under the radar. He’s now only mobile and clinical in front of goal, his overall work is also sound. The 22-year-old’s hold-up play is excellent, while his excellent link-up play, as well as deft finishing ability, makes him a much more complete striker than others.
The Frenchman’s never static, always looking to get in among goals. Dembele’s more energetic, agile and decisive than the erratic Lukaku. He’s the perfect fit for Solskjaer’s fast-paced style perfectly to act as the ruthless striker’s he’s been craving for.
United fans, do you think Dembele can solve the goal-scoring problems? Join the discussion by commenting below…
