PSG tracking Celtic star Rodgers claims can go right to the very top

Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be closely monitoring the progress of prolific Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.

The former Fulham star has not stopped scoring goals since his move to Parkhead in the summer of 2016, having previously seen a switch to Premier League side Tottenham fall through.

Struggling Everton have recently been linked with a January move for the 21-year-old, but according to L’Equipe, PSG are watching the striker’s situation closely, with sporting director Antero Henrique having previously looked into signing the player during his time at Porto.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers certainly believes the frontman has the ability to take his career to new heights.

He said: “I believe he’s got the talent and the quality to go right to the very top. He has the footballing qualities, but also that self-belief.

“[In] my coaching life and managerial career, I’ve worked with top talent, especially that end of the field. I certainly think he’s on course to be up there with one of the best strikers because he has all those attributes, but he’s still very young.

“He’s a big talent and developing very well. He is still very young but he has shown it for Celtic and for the French U21s, and I’m sure Didier Deschamps and his staff will be looking at the next step for him, which I believe will be into the full national team. He’s a big talent and developing very well.”
