Transfer Update : Arsenal join the race for Celtic sensation Dembele


Arsenal are added to the list of the clubs who are tracking French ace Moussa Dembele, who currently plays for Celtic. The twenty year old made a move to Scotland from Fulham this summer and since then he has developed in leaps and bounds.

The Gunners are ready to plot a bid for the Celtic sensation as his market value continues to rise. The striker has attracted multiple attentions from many European giants and North Londoners are believed to be eyeing a swoop for him as well.

Arsenal sent scouts to see him in a thrilling 3-3 draw for Celtic against Manchester City, where Dembele scored twice. Arsene Wenger seems to be an admirer of his fellow countryman and reports are coming that the Gunners boss is ready to land him at The Emirates.

Bayern Munchen, Real Madrid and Manchester United are also reported to be tracking his rapid progress. Dembele, has lit up his form under Brendan Rodgers and has proved that he has the quality to perform at the highest level. The striker has scored 16 goals for Celtic so far this season, 5 of which have come in the Champions League.

Arsenal are still struggling to find a suitable partner for Giroud, in spite of Alexis Sanchez has shown his through the middle ability off late. Lucas Perez joined the Gunners from La Coruna but so far he has had a sporadic role at the club. So Arsenal will be looking to fight to sign Dembele who has already shown his refreshing and fearless attributes.

Celtic on the other hand will be desperate to keep hold of their talisman but if Arsenal can table a proper bid, the Scottish outfit may well accept the deal. Arsenal fans still think their club need a proper striker alongside Giroud, and a move for Moussa Dembele at the red half of North London will delight them.
