If Celtic want to sign Peterborough United winger Siriki Dembele this summer, they will need to pay £4million to secure his signature.
That’s according to The Sun, who claim that Peterborough are demanding £4million for their star winger despite him being out of contract in a year.
Fulham, Bournemouth and Stoke City are all thought to be keen on signing Dembele, but all three are only willing to go up to £2.5million for him.
That’s interesting as Celtic are also thought to be interested in landing the wide man.
Celtic are in the mix too, and the Peterborough Telegraph reported last month that Dembele actually fancies a move to Scotland this summer.
Dembele is understood to have a young family north of the border and would be keen to move back up there if possible.
Add in that Dembele’s brother Karamoko already plays for Celtic, and a move to Parkhead does make sense for the 24-year-old.
Celtic have added a winger this summer in Liel Abada, but could still go for another, and Dembele – compared to Wilfried Zaha by Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony – wouldn’t break the bank.
Championship clubs may now be put off, but with Celtic needing signings, the Bhoys could be a potential destination for the speedy winger.
