Manchester United are considering a swoop for Fulham striker Moussa Dembele.

The Frenchman – who shares a name with the former Cottagers midfielder now plying his trade with Tottenham – impressed during a recent Under 21 clash with United.

David Moyes’ No 2 Steve Round, along with coaches Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, were impressed with the 17-year-old who scored in the 2-2 draw.

The match last month also saw Darren Fletcher put on a United shirt for the first time in 10 months after his battle with a serious bowel condition.

Dembele recently signed his first professional contract with the club meaning the Premier League champions would have to pay a fee.

He was signed from the Paris Saint-Germain academy last year for £284,000, the maximum payable under FIFA rules for international transfers involving academy players.

A France youth international, he is widely regarded as his country’s best in his age group and has been compared with Didier Drogba.
