Celtic fans react as report suggests Marseille will bid for Moussa Dembele

According to the print version of French media outlet L’Equipe, via The Daily Record, Marseille are lining up a €15m (£13.5m) bid for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, and Bhoys fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

The Scottish Premiership holders’ exit from the Champions League exit may well encourage foreign clubs to make bids for some of their stars, and it appears as though Dembele might well be one of those according to the latest report.

While he has suffered from injury issues in recent times, there is no doubt that as a France U21 international who has scored 50 goals and provided a further 18 assists in 91 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side, a £13.5m exit would be more than controversial.

Celtic supporters, who have demanded Rodgers to act and change things at right-back after Mikael Lustig’s performance against AEK Athens, have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the exit link, and while one said “try £40m” when talking about the potential offer on the table, another said “if we sell him things will turn even more sour”.
