Premier League trio chasing Celtic striker sensation
Three Premier League clubs sent scouts to watch Celtic striker Moussa Dembele in the Old Firm Derby against Rangers this weekend, as his reputation continues to grow in Europe, per the Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old French striker made the surprising move to Scotland from Fulham in the summer, despite impressing bigger clubs in England. But he has since made easy work of the SPFL, scoring over 30 goals already this term.

Perhaps the arrival of a big-name manager like Brendan Rodgers persuaded him, but with a 25-point lead at the top of the table, it would seem he may need to leave sooner rather than later to challenge himself.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are monitoring his form, with the latter heavily linked with a January move. French champions Paris Saint-Germain also want to sign the striker this summer. Celtic have named a price of £30million.
According to the Mail, Dembele believes he has a chance of making it into Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the upcoming friendlies.
