Away from the cash-rich Premier League, new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will have to take a new approach to transfers.
However, the former Liverpool boss is set to steal a march on several clubs south of the border by making promising Fulham striker Moussa Dembélé his first signing at Celtic Park.
The Mirror are this afternoon reporting that the 19 year old French Under-20 international is to undergo a medical in the coming days before completing a move to the Scottish Premiership champions.
Though he is currently out of contract at Craven Cottage, Celtic will still have to pay a training compensation fee to the Championship side, which the report predicts will be somewhere in the region of £500,000.
The talented forward had been poised to join Tottenham in January, but the two clubs were unable to agree a fee and the move fell through. It is not known if the Premier League side were to renew their interest this summer, but it now looks as though that decision has been taken out of their hands.
The former Paris Saint-Germain academy player had something of a breakout year in England’s second tier last season, scoring 15 goals in 43 games as the Cottagers narrowly avoided relegation to League One.
Once the move is finalised, Dembélé is expected to join his new teammates on their pre-season tour of Slovenia. He will then make his competitive debut for the Bhoys in a Champions League qualifier against either Flora Tallinn of Estonia, or Gibraltar’s Lincoln Red Imps.
