According to an exclusive report from TeamTalk, Arsenal are among a number of teams interested in Celtic’s Karamoko Dembele.
Dembele had a brilliant debut against Hearts last season and is deemed to be one of Scotland’s finest young talents. The report reveals that the Gunners are joined by Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus among others in his pursuit.
Dembele, still only 16, hasn’t played yet this season but his progression behind the scenes has been really impressive. The report claims that Arsenal, who recently signed Kieran Tierney from the Hoops, will look to use their relationship with Scottish Champions to work out a deal.
Arsenal could prove to be an exciting proposition for Dembele thanks to Unai Emery’s willingness to play the youngsters regularly. Gabriel Martinelli, Matteo Guendouzi and Joe Willock have all been given regular game time and Dembele could be the next.
However, with Europe’s finest names keen on the teenager, it will not be easy for Arsenal to lure him in. Celtic proved to be tough negotiators over the summer with Tierney’s deal dragging for almost all of the transfer window. Neil Lennon’s side will do all they can to keep hold of their prized possession but that will not faze the big sides who are after him.
