Rumour Mill: Second Bite at Moussa Dembele?

According to a report from HITC Sport, Spurs are set to make a second attempt to sign Moussa Dembele from Scottish champions Celtic.

The article bases it’s theory on the betting odds released by Skybet. Tottenham have gone to 5/1 to sign the 20 year old striker who scored 30 goals in Scotland this season despite picking up an injury. For the previous month, Spurs had sat at 7/1. The sudden change in likelihood in Tottenham’s favour suggests a move may be on the cards. However, Chelsea remain the most likely candidates to pick up the Frenchman’s signature being priced at 13/8.

Both London clubs were linked with Dembele in January, but failed to finalise a deal, which caused Dembele to announce his stay at Celtic in dramatic fashion on Twitter. Now though, according to the Sun, the Scottish side are willing to cash in on the France Under 21s forward.

Celtic recently finished their season as invincibles, going the entire campaign unbeaten in the league, and are now just one more victory away from completing a stunning treble trophy-haul. Dembele’s role in this success is undeniable, having scored in every competition Celtic played in, including the Champions League, which they exited early.

Tottenham will of course be looking to bolster their attacking options after Summer signing Vincent Janssen struggled to make his mark. Dembele, at just 20 years of age, could be the perfect addition ahead of next season’s conquest for silverware.

Do you think this would be a good move? Or should we look to strengthen other areas?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Dembele isn’t yet established with Celtic. No club is going to spend 30 or 40 million for him. He is certainly a big game player but has a very long way to go. To move for money alone is a mistake and short lived. A move to the top five clubs in England would be no more than a sideways move, below that, a backwards move. But if he wants to go to a bigger club he can look at Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich. If he wants progress he should look only at those three.

  2. Celtic FC have never recieved or accepted any bid for Moussa Dembele. Brendan Rodgers and Moussa Dembele have ambitions at Celtic and the striker will be at Celtic next season guaranteed!

  3. Dembele would be a good addition to Spurs squad but would need a season to adjust to the higher grade of football in the premier league but could turn out to be a good buy at 20/25 million considering his age
