Moussa Dembele TEAMtalk

Marseille are lining up a fresh bid for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, according to reports coming out of France.

The Bhoys attacker made a huge impression in his first season in Scottish football but has since been hit by a string of injury problems.

Despite that, the 22-year-old has still managed to notch an incredibly impressive 50 goals in 91 games for the Hoops since joining from Fulham in 2016.

But now, according to L’Equipe, Marseille are preparing a £13.5m offer to lure the Frenchman home.

It is understood that the Ligue 1 outfit are confident that they will get their man before the transfer deadline shuts in France.

Dembele still has two years remaining on his current Celtic contract and it’s reported that the Hoops board would want at least £20million for the forward.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been left hugely frustrated by the lack of signings at Parkhead this summer, although the club did actually break their transfer record to sign striker Odsonne Edouard from PSG for £9m.
