Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyeing surprising transfer – a year after Arsenal failed | Football | Sport

Manchester United boss Solskjaer is determined to steer the Red Devils to Premier League title glory next season, with the Red Devils yet to win the prize since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge.

And, while United have looked more potent under the 46-year-old, a summer of change lies in wait.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels his side need more sparkle going forward, with the goals drying up in recent times.

When he first took over at Old Trafford, the Red Devils could not stop finding the net, scoring eight goals in two games against Cardiff and Bournemouth.

But, in recent times, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have struggled.

And The Mirror say Solskjaer is keeping tabs on Lyon star Dembele, who has impressed over in Ligue 1 this season.

The former Celtic star only moved to France back in the summer.

And Dembele has flourished alongside the likes of Memphis Depay and Nabil Fekir, finding the net 18 times across all competitions.

Solskjaer is now reportedly eyeing the forward, who he admires for his tenacious work rate and prolific scoring record.

The Mirror add, though, that Arsenal are also interested.

It is claimed that the Gunners made enquiries about the star a year ago only to see him end up leaving Celtic for Lyon instead.

Who wins the race for his signature, though, is something that only time will tell.

Meanwhile, United battled their way to a 2-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday.

And Solskjaer admitted his side were lucky, saying: “You want to win games, especially at this stage of the season, you know that points are so vital.

“We know we didn’t perform and we know we should perform better, but we’ve got away with three points.

“I’ve been in that dressing room so many times on the other side and the other coach says, ‘We played well today but…’

“If you keep playing this, you’ll get enough points- that’s what I would say to Manuel. If they keep performing, they’ll get results.

“But if we keep performing like this, our luck might run out so we have to get better performances.

“But then again sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than good.”
