The Red Devils signed Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua before the end of the January transfer window but are expected to move for a more long-term option ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
According to Sky Sports News, the 23-year-old favours a switch to Old Trafford above any other club and dreams of joining the 20-time English champions this summer.
The report adds that Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas values Dembele in the region of €100m (£83m) but will have to accept a lesser figure for a deal to go through.
The striker, who is also allegedly admired by Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Newcastle United and West Ham United, has scored 19 times in 37 appearances for his French club during the 2019-20 campaign. body check tags ::
