After his standout display in the derby, Moussa Dembele’s long term future has again been called into question. The Daily Record are reporting that Marseille are keen on making a summer bid for the Frenchman.
The 21 year old has returned to the top of his game following a difficult second season at Celtic Park categorised with injuries and loss of form. His goal and assist for the winner moved him back into the headlines, and back into thoughts of interested clubs it seems.
Brighton were reportedly keen on the French Under 21 international in January but a move failed to materialise. Marseille meanwhile have reportedly looked at our no.10 before but they were put off by the price tag.
However, it seems the Ligue One club are keen to revive their interest with the Record reporting that they have put the striker on a three man shortlist of summer targets.
Fans on Twitter were sceptical about the claims considering the Record`s past reporting on the forward`s potential sale:
Good result for Celtic at the weekend double treble inevitable better bet back to trying to punt their players eh?
