Young Moussa Dembele has proved to be one of the best signings of the season across Europe, with the former Fulham man taking to Scottish football like a duck to water following his move to Celtic in the summer.
Just 20-years-old, the young striker has established himself as a crucial player in Brendan Rodgers’ side for both the domestic campaign and in the Champions League, where he has scored against Manchester City.
Statistically, Dembele is one of the finest strikers in European football and he boasts a phenomenal record from his last 18 appearances for the Scottish champions.

Scoring 15 goals, two of which have come in the Champions League, Dembele is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young prospects in European football and Celtic have a huge test on their hands in order to keep him from jumping ship to a bigger side.
Dembele’s recent run of form has seen his secure eight goals in as many games, scoring twice this week as Celtic saw off Ross County in the SPL and arch-rivals Rangers in the cup.
He’ll be looking to improve his numbers further in the coming games, especially in next week’s crucial Champions League tie against Borussia Monchengladbach – a match that is likely to decide whether Celtic remain in European football past the winter period.
