Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly entered the race alongside Barcelona, Real Madrid and Arsenal for Celtic striking sensation Moussa Dembele
Express have run an exclusive stating that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in Celtic’s talented young forward Moussa Dembele. The player has been in impressive form since making the move from Fulham to Celtic Park, and is attracting a host of top European heavyweights.
Moussa Dembele started making a name for himself at Fulham, before leaving Craven Cottage in favour of Scottish champions Celtic for a measly figure of £500,000. And the player seems to have unearthed a whole new level, with the 20-year-old slotting in 12 goals already this season.
Of the goals the youngster has scored for Celtic, the hat-trick against Rangers in the Old Firm derby and the double against Premier League club Manchester City in a 3-3 draw at Celtic Park in the Champions League group stage, has seen a meteoric rise in the player’s stock, with European giants taking notice of the French U21 international’s talents.
The player has been already linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and a host of clubs from the Premier League. Current Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is adamant that the youngster will stay put with the Scottish champions but the interest in the 20-year-old seems to be growing day by day.
Now, Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly taken notice of the player, with the French club sending representatives to watch the player in action during the international break for France’s U-21 squad. The 20-year-old scored in the match as his team ran out 3-0 winners over Northern Ireland.
Moussa Dembele graduated through the academy at Paris Saint-Germain before being released by the club. The player, who then found home at Fulham, has now grown into one of the most sought-after future superstars in the footballing world and PSG are now planning a homecoming for the French talent.
It would be interesting to see whether Moussa Dembele would choose to stay put at Celtic or move to a relatively bigger club. He might just relish the opportunity to go back to the club where he went through his basic football education and provide to the club, who had decided to dump him at the age of 16, an example of the talent he possesses.
