Several news outlets are reporting that West Ham made a £20m bid for Celtic’s prolific striker, Moussa Dembele. Given that the young striker is arguably the best player on the team, Celtic fans on twitter reacted incredulously and with a good sense of humor.
Celtic have already reportedly counter-offered West Ham with a £30m offer, which would potentially net Celtic a near £29m in profits, as the player was acquired for under £1m from Fulham last Summer.
It’s still unlikely that Dembele will leave Celtic in January, as the player has a multi-year contract in place, Brendan Rodgers will likely not want his star forward to leave in the middle of the season, and Celtic can sit around and wait for a bidding war to start.
For now though, Celtic fans took to Twitter to react to the supposed multi-million offer from West Ham.
Fans know which team is best
