Celtic appear to be preparing for life without star striker Moussa Dembele who is bound to leave Parkhead latest summer, with Dulwich Hamlet 22-year-old striker Reise Allassani reportedly on their radar.
Despite being a non-league hitman plying his trade in the Isthmian League Premier Division, Rangers are also keen on Allassani who has bagged 17 goals in 15 games for the semi-professional side.
The youngster was released by Crystal Palace in 2016, only for an injury to prevent him from linking up with Sheffield Wednesday.
Allassani’s red-hot form means he is on his way back to league football soon, and the Old Firm rivals will also have to beat interests from England to have a chance.
Championship trio Norwich City, Reading and Barnsley and League One side Gillingham are all interested in the goalmachine.
Rangers are badly in need of another striker, but Celtic always edge them to signatures of targets whenever both sides go head-to-head in the transfer market, and that could be the case again should Allassani decide to move to Scotland.
