Arsenal will reportedly target Celtic star if Alexis Sanchez leaves this summer

According to reports, Arsenal are interested in signing Moussa Dembele from Celtic and may step up their interest if Alexis Sanchez ends up leaving the club this summer.

While manager Arsene Wenger is hoping to retain Sanchez for next season, the Chilean could end up leaving if the club receives an offer of around £50 million.

After moving from Fulham to the Hoops last summer, Dembele displayed great performances for Brendan Rodgers side last term, scoring 32 goals from 48 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The youngster’s value is sure to increase significantly over the coming years as he continues his development and now could be a wise time to buy if the Gunners wish to secure the player at a decent price.

The 21-year-old Dembele has reportedly been valued at around £30 million, though there is a strong chance that Celtic will try to cash in on a sale by demanding more.
