Odds continue to slide in favour of Tottenham Hotspur signing Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.

SkyBet price Spurs at 5/1. A day earlier they were 7/1, a figure they had been priced at for the past month.

Chelsea are favourites to sign the Frenchman at 13/8, after substantial interest in late January.

Dembele has scored more than 30 goals in all competition s this season, his first at Celtic after signing from Fulham a year ago.

Spurs were in talks to sign him months earlier but could not get a deal done, and have struggled to find an effective alternative for star man Harry Kane.

The Sun reported last week that Celtic are ready to cash in on the striker this summer.

Dembele is currently attempting to write his name in the history books with his Celtic teammates as they are one game away from going through the entire domestic season in Scotland unbeaten.

Whether Spurs are willing to pay a big fee to sign a player they could have nabbed for a portion of the price 18 months ago is another matter, but the falling odds suggest the possibility is trending in the right direction.
