Celtic are reportedly pursuing Fulham striker Moussa Dembele.
Fulham's Moussa Dembele (R) applauds fans at the end of the match
Celtic will be in the market for new signings this summer - and they have been linked with a move for Fulham goalscorer Moussa Dembele.
New manager Brendan Rodgers needs new additions to the Bhoys squad with the Champions League qualifiers on the horizon, and a new striker is a particular need.
Colin Kazim-Richards has been allowed to leave the club to join Brazilian side Coritiba, whilst Carlton Cole has been released from his contract after a disappointing spell in Glasgow.
Nadir Ciftci may be returning from his loan spell at Eskisehirspor, but Celtic need other additions up front - and the Daily Mail report that Rodgers is targeting Fulham star Moussa Dembele.
The 19-year-old striker, who joined Fulham from Paris Saint-Germain back in 2012, hit 17 goals for the Cottagers last season, and has become one of the most sought-after strikers in English football.
Frenchman Dembele is out of contract this summer, and whilst English clubs would be forced to pay huge compensation for him, Celtic can exploit a loophole and secure him for just £250,000 in a bargain move for manager Rodgers.
Since the reports emerged of Celtic's interest in Dembele, fans have been taking to Twitter to give their views on a possible move - and most supporters are delighted with the suggestion.
Many believe that landing a player with Dembele's potential for just a quarter of a million would be a massive coup for Celtic, and he would be given the chance to develop under Rodgers, who has always attempted to work with young players.
There's some way to go before fans can truly celebrate a deal for Dembele, but the indications are that fans would love to see him arrive as competition for leading goalscorer Leigh Griffiths.

Moussa Dembele could be a risky signing but very talented striker. Exactly the type we need.— Eamon O'Lenin ☭ (@eamonolenin) June 25, 2016
Where have the Moussa Dembele to Celtic stories come from? Would be a very decent signing if true. Only 19 years old as well.— FirstLastForever (@CelticForever) June 24, 2016
Dembele joining us would be a good career move for him. Big fanbase, guaranteed first-team football and quality guidance from Brendan.— Ryan (@NewsOfCeltic) June 25, 2016
