French giants reportedly in talks with Celtic over potentially huge transfer

Celtic are in talks with Marseille over a possible transfer of Moussa Dembele, according to reports.

The 21-year-old Dembele impressively scored 32 goals from 48 appearances for the Bhoys last summer and has been watched over by many high profile clubs.

English Premiership clubs West Ham and Chelsea are rumored to have made approached for the Frenchman during the January transfer window.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is keen on keeping Dembele in his squad next season and hopes to use the striker as part of his plans for the Champions League as the Scottish club looks to advance beyond the group stage of the Champions League.

Dembele is unlikely to remain with Celtic for the long-term though and it now looks like a move to his homeland could be on the cards this summer

Should he be sold, the Bhoys will have enough time to find a suitable reinforcement. They currently have cover through Leigh Griffiths, Nadir Ciftci and 17-year-old Jack Aitchison.
