Celtic to battle Arsenal and Chelsea in ambitious Rodgers raid on 16 goal forward

Celtic have joined a raft of Premier League sides in an attempt to land prolific Fulham forward Moussa Dembele the summer, report the Daily Mail.

The Frenchman notched a stunning 16 goals for the Cottagers in the Championship last term and was shortlisted for the prestigious Young Player of the Year award.

Out of contract at the end of the season, the 19-year old saw a move to Tottenham Hotspur collapse in January, with Chelsea also believed to be keen.

London rivals Arsenal are understood to be casting watchful eyes over the situation, though Brendan Rodgers is now said to have thrown his hat into the ring.

The former Liverpool coach has already axed three forwards from his burgeoning squad in Glasgow and is thought to view the former Paris Saint-Germain trainee as a top target.

Aston Villa forward Scott Sinclair has also been linked with the Bhoys.

Due to compensation rules, the forward would command little fee should he move North of the Border, while he could cost English teams up to £8m.
