PSG linked with Dembele swoop

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly monitoring young Celtic striking sensation Moussa Dembele and sent scouts to watch him in action recently for the France Under-21s.

The 20-year-old has been on fire in front of goal for the Scottish giants, and his brace against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League has captured the attention of Europe's top clubs.

Dembele, who started in the youth ranks at PSG before moving to Fulham when he was 16, has now hit 12 goals in 17 appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side.

The Bhoys appear to have struck gold with the French youngster – he joined the Scottish  Premiership champions for just £500,000 before the start of this season.

Prior to that, Dembele had hit an impressive 17 goals in 46 appearances for the Cottagers in the English Championship.

Nonetheless, Les Parisiens are now monitoring the striker closely and had scouts watch him score in France's 3-0 win over Northern Ireland last Tuesday.

However, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Hull are reportedly also in the race to land Dembele.
