​Celtic, RB Leipzig interested in Chelsea starlet Solanke

Scottish giants Celtic have emerged as favourites to sign out-of-contract Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke, according to The Sun.

The report claims that Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has identified the 19-year-old as a potential replacement for Moussa Dembele, who is a summer target for some of the major clubs in Europe.

Solanke has spent most of the current season with the Chelsea youth side, and he is keen to move to a club where he can play senior football on a regular basis.

Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are also believed to have held talks with Solanke's representatives.
