Moussa Dembele

What the papers say

Manchester United have a striker high on their January transfer wish list and have eyed up former Celtic forward Moussa Dembele, the Daily Mail says. Dembele, 23, is currently on the books at Lyon and formerly played at Fulham, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to fill the gap left by the departures of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Sticking with the north west, the saga of Paul Pogba looks set to return this winter, with The Sun reporting the 26-year-old will make a fresh push to leave the club in January.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror reports that Massimiliano Allegri could replace Pochettino in the Tottenham hot seat.
