Manchester United are closing in on an exciting double deal for Moussa Dembele and Giovanni Di Lorenzo, while Liverpool have put €60m on the table for a Lyon star, all in the Euro papers.



Manchester United have an agreement in place with Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to a report in Spain.

TodoFichajes report that Dembele will leave Lyon to join up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a €70m transfer.

The former Celtic striker has scored 42 goals and 13 assists in 88 games, but his time in France is up.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are still eager to sign Napoli right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo and have made an enquiry.

Corriere dello Sport claim United are looking at making an offer for the player, who is currently holding contract discussions with Napoli.

United were linked with the Italy international during the January transfer window and the reports claim the versatile 26-year-old is still wanted at Old Trafford.
