Chelsea set to sign French superstar: He scored 32 goals last season

CHELSEA are in the hunt for Celtic sensation Moussa Dembele.

That’s according to Sky Sports transfer guru Kaveh Solhekol who reckons the Blues are vying for his signature, along with Marseille and West Ham.

He wrote on Twitter: “Marseille want to sign Celtic striker Moussa Dembele. He’s also an option for West Ham and Chelsea. Scored 32 times last season”

The 20-year-old striker has dazzled north of the border since switching from Fulham last summer.

Starsport understands Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have been regularly watching the Frenchman.

The Blues, who bagged Premier League glory last season, were also heavily linked with a raid in January.

Their need for a new forward has intensified in recent weeks.

Antonio Conte has missed out on Romelu Lukaku who will join Manchester United from Everton.

The charismatic Italian also informed Diego Costa that he isn’t in his plans.

Dembele bagged 32 goals in 46 games for Celtic during the last campaign.

And Hoops legend Jackie McNamara told Starsport earlier this summer that a move to an elite club could be on the cards for the youngster.

“You can see it,” he said.

“When you look at the games, he did well in big competitions.

“His all round game is good and he’s a strong lad for a youngster.

“He did really well in the Champions League against Manchester City and in the other games.”
