Celtic’s Moussa Dembele is set to leave the Scottish champions once they’ve completed their Champions League qualification games this summer.
That’s according to a recent report published in The Sun, who claim that manager Brendan Rodgers is already resigned to losing the talented French forward with a number of Europe’s top clubs monitoring his situation.
When quizzed by reporters, Rodgers said: “Moussa is very content and happy. He is not a player we want to sell, but we know how football works and we’ll see what happens. But certainly not until after the Champions League qualifiers, there won’t be anything done before then.”
If Celtic manage to progress into the 2017/18 Champions League group stages, it’ll improve their chances of retaining Dembele for another year. He’s got three years remaining on his existing deal at Celtic Park, though it’s increasingly likely that he’ll make a Premier League move at some stage.
Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham are just three of the sides that have been mentioned, and the interest is no surprise given how Dembele has impressed on a consistent basis both in Scotland and previously at Fulham prior to his surprising switch.
