Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers made it clear he intends to hold onto Dembele.
He said: “We're fortunate to have him. He was coveted by a number of teams but his agent is a clever guy.
"Does he go to a so-called better league and sit on the bench and not get so many games?
"Or does he come to a big club with an opportunity to develop and invest some time into his development, and then step up if that's what he wants to do?"
