In football transfers that finally make sense, we present you with Borussia Dortmund being interested in Celtic’s Moussa Dembélé.

The Bundesliga side, who sold Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and brought in Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea for the second half of the season, are looking for a new forward this summer, and the France U21 international ticks a lot of their boxes.

This is what Foot Mercato in France were reporting late on Sunday, explaining Dortmund have enquired about the Celtic Park star ‘multiple times’ over the past few days.

The Germans are said to ‘appreciate Dembélé’s profile a lot’, and ‘could make a move’ for the 21-year-old, who could very well leave the Glasgow club in the coming months.

Celtic’s decision to make Odsonne Edouard’s loan deal permanent for €10m, a record fee for the club, suggests Brendan Rodgers sees his future frontline with the Paris Saint-Germain youngster in it.

Dembélé’s stock on the market means he’s likely to get the Scottish Premiership champions a decent fee this summer, and if Dortmund come forward with an offer that heavily surpasses what Southampton paid for Virgil Van Dijk three years ago, they’ll certainly find it hard to say no.
