After a great first season in Scotland, one of the big stories of the summer and January was the future of Celtic’s Moussa Dembélé.

In the end, nothing really happened, with the Scottish Premiership champions able to keep hold of the France U21 starlet for a second season, seeing off a few tepid bids here and there.

However, the striker has been unable to match last campaign’s form, scoring just seven goals in the league, with Brendan Rodgers rotating between him, Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths throughout.

Because of this, rumours of an exit at the end of the season have reemerged, with some of the old suspects appearing in the list of clubs interested.

Le Foot in France claim Marseille, who are yet to manage to get the best out of Kostas Mitroglou, have reopened the process of trying to sign the young Frenchman in the summer.

Joining the likes of Kevin Gameiro and Vincent Aboubakar on their list, a lot will depend on how much Celtic ask for the 21-year-old.

While financially stable, Rudi Garcia’s side still have a budget to adhere to, meaning over the top demands will force them to look elsewhere.

If Celtic do want to make a healthy profit on the striker, which seems to have been the plan all along, this summer might be the right time to cash in.
