Celtic’s most notable piece of business this summer is the signing of Odsonne Edouard from Paris-Saint Germain on a permanent deal after the French striker’s successful loan spell at Celtic Park last season.
Edouard has already started this campaign off in good fashion having scored four goals and, while his permanent signing will come as a massive boost to manager Brendan Rodgers, keeping his compatriot at the club for the new season, which Celtic have appeared to have done, is even more huge.
With the transfer window in England now shut, according to The Celtic Star, Moussa Dembele could extend his stay at Celtic Park by signing a new contract.
Premier League clubs have often been linked with a move for Dembele (via Sky Sports) but, much to the delight of Celtic supporters, nothing has ever materialised.
Dembele, who is valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, is currently struggling with an on-going hamstring problem and was not as productive last season as he was in his debut campaign at the club.
However, the Frenchman is still a vital part of Rodgers’ squad and while Celtic probably have enough firepower in their squad to retain their SPL title even without Dembele, they need a player of his quality to go further in the Champions League.
The transfer market outside of England is, of course, yet to close while it is not yet certain Dembele will put pen to paper on a deal at Celtic Park. But, nevertheless, keeping the former Fulham man in Glasgow for another year can only be good news.
