Moussa Dembele has become one of the most sought after strikers in Europe with a number of clubs being linked to the Celtic star, who’s been in prolific form all season, but the latest reports that the 20-year-old has turned down a move to Premier League champions-elect Chelsea will give fans of The Hoops hope that maybe the former Fulham man can be tempted to stay at Parkhead past the summer.
Chelsea aren’t the only club that were reportedly chasing Dembele this summer, as the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the striker over the course of the season, as his goals have helped propel Brendan Rodgers’ team to a dominant domestic campaign.
While the rejection of Chelsea doesn’t guarantee Dembele’s future lies with Celtic, but it at very least gives some fans hope that he may be tempted to help spearhead the Bhoys’ Champions League campaign next season.
Here’s how the fans reacted to news Dembele turned down a move to Stamford Bridge…

If true, Dembele knocking back a £65k p/w contract with Chelsea is something to be admired.
