Arsenal boss Wenger turns to Celtic striker Dembele

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is lining up a bid for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.

The Daily Star says Wenger has identified Dembele as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

Former Fulham star Dembele had a stunning year for Brendan Rodgers' Celtic, scoring 32 goals in all competitions to help the Glasgow side win another Scottish league and cup Double.

His stunning campaign included the first Old Firm hat-trick since 1966, in a 5-1 win against Rangers in September, and five Champions League goals.

The 21-year-old was also named in the Scottish Premiership team of the season.

Dembele was priced at £30m earlier this summer, but Celtic could demand more as he has three years left on his contract.
