Celtic: Siriki Dembele favouring Scotland switch

Celtic: Siriki Dembele favouring Scotland switch -Celtic

Rumoured Celtic target Siriki Dembele is favouring a move to Scotland, according to The Peterborough Telegraph.

The Lowdown: Dembele links

The Hoops were first linked with a move for Dembele last November along with a number of English sides.

Reports in March claimed Celtic were still keen on the forward, who now has 12 months remaining on his Posh deal.

Dembele, on £2,600-a-week with the Championship side, scored 11 goals and registered 12 assists in 42 League One last season, helping Peterborough earn promotion to the second tier.

The Latest: Scotland switch

According to The Peterborough Telegraph, Dembele is still thought to favour a move to Scotland. They credit Celtic, Rangers, Fulham, Nottingham Forest and West Brom with an interest in the versatile forward.

The 24-year-old, who has started pre-season in ‘sparkling’ form, is set to feature against Chelsea on the weekend.

Dembele’s younger brother, Karamoko, has turned out under new Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou and scored in the 2-1 win over Charlton last weekend.

The Verdict: A shrewd move?

Dembele is valued at £1.08m by Transfermarkt and is now into the final 12 months of his Peterborough deal, so a move to Parkhead could be a shrewd one by the Hoops.

He can play as a left-winger, centre-forward and an attacking midfielder so would provide Postecoglou with plenty of versatility, as well as some impressive end product based on his numbers this season.

A move could also help younger brother Karamoko commit his future in Glasgow, as he is also into the final 12 months of his Hoops contract.

To us, this seems like a win-win all round for Celtic if they can get a deal over the line, adding depth and goals to their forward ranks while potentially changing the younger Dembele’s path too.
