AC Milan are the latest club to be linked with Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, who is understood to be high on Arsenal’s radar.
Arsenal scouts have reportedly watched Dembele on numerous occasions in the past one year, with reports claiming we are keeping an eye on his development, with the view of making a future move.
According to the Scottish Sun via Daily Cannon, it isn’t only Arsenal who are keen on the striker. Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Milan are also big admirers of the 21 year old.
Milan scouts were present at Celtic’s 7-1 loss to Paris Saint Germain last week to watch the striker in action.
Although valued at £20m, Celtic are expected to demand a lot more than that especially with the number of clubs after him.
Arsenal are long term admirers of Dembele and tried to sign him on a free transfer from Fulham in 2016 but he opted to join Celtic.
He has developed into a top talent within this short period of time. Since moving to Celtic Park, Dembele has had a direct involvement in 52 goals (40 goals and 12 assists) for Celtic in just 64 games.
Dembele’s contract at Celtic doesn’t run out until 2020, so the Scottish club won’t be under any pressure to sell. However, should a suitor stump up a huge offer, they might be very well tempted to do business.
If the Frenchman would decide to move to the Emirates is left to be seen, he is at a stage of his career where he needs to play regularly to continue to develop.
The Gunners only recently splashed out £50million on Dembele’s compatriot Alexander Lacazette last summer and he will stand between Dembele and first team football in North London.
