La Liga giants Real Madrid have joined the race to the 20-year-old Celtic attacker Moussa Dembele – reports the Daily Mirror.

Real Madrid are in hunt to sign a centre-forward as Karim Benzema is losing his shape, while Alvaro Morata is all but certain to leave the Bernabeu premises at the end of the season, hence, Dembele chase does make sense.

But the report the has also claimed that the former Fulham hotshot is also a potential target for the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea therefore, the Los Blancos will have to act fast if they tend to lure him up.

Back in January, The Blues from London – Chelsea – made an inquiry about his availability in the summer, but the Bhoys were unwilling to let him go half-way through the season and slapped a whopping £40 million price tag.

Celtic, who bought him for just a compensation fee of £300,000, are flying in the Scottish Premiership and are on a long unbeaten run – in which Dembele has scored 24 goals in just 34 appearances. Simply astonishing.

Furthermore, just a few days back, it was reported that Bayern Munich are preparing a shocking £30 million bid for the 20-year-old, who was also a target for West Ham United, hence, it is fair to say that a huge bidding war is expected at the season for this Celtic hitman.

Dembele, who joined the Bhoys on a four-year contract, will have to very careful while choosing his options because at his age, only a regular first team football will help him in his career.

Known for his flashy pace and superb dribbling abilities, the 20-year-old will be a complete rookie wherever he lands, hence it is fair to say that he will have to bicker it hard to establish his first team spot elsewhere.
