Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid are likely to pursue Celtic starlet Moussa Dembele again this summer.
The 20-year-old has scored 24 goals in his debut season for the Hoops and is certain to cost upwards of £30million if he does leave Glasgow.
Nonetheless, there are no guarantees that the young forward will want to leave the club, where he is developing well under Brendan Rodgers.
In fact, Dembele’s agent has insisted that despite interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, the player could see out his contract over the next four years.
“Moussa doesn’t stress. He signed a four-year deal at Celtic and, in his head, he’ll be at Celtic for those four years,” Mamadi Fofana told the Daily Record.
“If he has to leave, that will happen at the right time, but it’s not in Moussa’s head or my head.
“In January, there was speculation, but there will always be speculation if he does well.
“It’s good. It means we are all doing well. The boy is doing well, Celtic is doing well and we as agents are doing the right things for everyone.”
Chelsea enquired about his availability in January, but they could be forced into a new hunt in the summer if Diego Costa quits for the Chinese Super League.
It’s not quite clear where Michy Batshuayi would fit into all this either, as at present, Chelsea definitely don’t have any more room for strikers.
Antonio Conte doesn’t appear to have all that much faith in Batshuayi, though, so it would be strange if he opted for Dembele, who has a long way to go to prove he can bridge the gulf between Scottish football and the Premier League.
