Ten Hag’s team has scored just one goal in its first two Premier League defeats against Brentford and Brighton.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford is up in the air after he informed the club earlier in the summer that he wants to leave as they missed out on Champions League football.

The Red Devils offered £7.5million for Bologna striker Arnautovic last week but pulled the plug on the deal after a huge backlash from United fans amid the potential signing of the former West Ham and Stoke.

Morata has also revealed he is reluctant to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, while doubts remain about Leicester City’s willingness to allow star striker Jamie Vardy to join United.

As a result, United have turned their attention to Lyon striker Dembele, while Everton and Villarreal have also been linked this window with moves for the 26-year-old.

The attacker only has a one-year contract with Lyon, with several European clubs on high alert ahead of a possible free transfer next summer.

The Frenchman scored 22 goals in 36 appearances for Lyon last season, but Les Gones failed to qualify for European football as they stuttered to eighth place in Ligue 1.

Dembele has fallen down the pecking order at the Groupama Stadium following the arrival of former Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The club want to avoid losing Dembele for free next summer and are willing to sell the striker if he does not agree to a new deal with the club.

That has drawn the attention of United, who have shown interest in the Frenchman in previous transfer windows.

The Red Devils meet Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday, as both sides try to claim their first Premier League win of the season.
