Off all the players mentioned in this slideshow, Moussa Dembele is the only one who strikes as a proper number nine who can hassle defenders, win aerial duels, chase long balls and make runs in behind.

Dembele currently plays for Lyon in Ligue 1 and in his first season at the French club, Dembele scored 20 goals, which is not bad for a 22-year-old. Dembele could prove to be a direct replacement of Romelu Lukaku as the Frenchman is big and tall striker whose physical qualities can be compared to the Belgian.

The 22-year-old alongside Rashford could form a deadly front two as one has the pace to beat the defenders, while the other can keep hold of the ball. Lyon can prove to be tough negotiators but a deal for him isn't impossible. United are certainly interested in his services and not so long ago, reports in France suggested that United have even made a bid for the young striker.
