Manchester United wants to sign prolific Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, according to reports.

Dembele, who has 32 goals for Celtic in all competitions this season, is being monitored by Chelsea but according to The Independent, United has also entered the race for his signature.

United manager Jose Mourinho will need a striker in the summer, with the Old Trafford future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic still unclear.

Dembele first caught the eye at Fulham in the Championship, English football's second tier, where he scored 16 goals before a move north of the border in 2016.

Antoine Griezmann, Mourinho's original principal transfer target for the summer, has now been "deprioritized" according to the newspaper.
