Arsenal are reportedly among the clubs have decided to scout Celtic striker Moussa Dembele in a bid to chalk out the plans for a potential summer transfer; along with rivals Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Gunners are concerned over a possible departure of Alexis Sanchez at the end of this season as he is yet to agree a new contract, with the likes of Juventus, Inter, PSG, Chelsea and even Manchester United targeting him in a surprise move.

The Chilean has so far topped Arsenal’s scoring chart this season with 20 goals in 34 appearances, but it is believed the north Londoners are now planning to take a closer look at Scottish Premiership sensation Dembele.

The 20-year-old French attacker has been a revelation enjoying terrific form this term since leaving Fulham for Celtic, scoring 32 goals already across all competitions.

Dembele’s performances have attracted interests from top clubs around Europe over the last few months, and The Sun now claim that Arsenal have joined the race for snap up the youngster as a long-term replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

But they will face stiff competition from a number of big boys, with Chelsea, Liverpool, City and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain also have placed scouts to watch him in action against Rangers.

Arsene Wenger is well-known for his knack of signing the best young talents, and this could give Arsenal a little advantage in persuading Dembele.

The £30 million-rated frontman was in high demand during the January window, and although Celtic would do everything they can to keep hold of their prized asset, it seems only a matter of time before he is lured back to the top flight of English football to prove himself at a higher level.
