England Looking Into Possibility Of Celtic’s Moussa Dembele Playing For Them

England are exploring the possibility of Celtic striker Moussa Dembele playing for them at international level.

The 20-year-old forward’s shares have skyrocketed this week following his display in Celtic’s 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League.

During the clash with Pep Guardiola’s superstars at Parkhead, the Hoops hitman ran Nicolas Otamendi and Aleksandar Kolarov ragged, bagging himself a brace in the process.

That made it 12 strikes already this season, which includes his hat-trick against Old Firm rivals Rangers.

And while Arsenal are reported to be snooping around and keeping close tabs on Dembele‘s progress, it appears his international future is of interest to football chiefs down south.

The Mirror reports that the FA are now exploring the possibility of Dembele turning out for England instead of France.

Dembele – who made the switch to Glasgow for £500,000 fro Fulham in the summer – will complete his five years of residency in the UK next year after moving to Craven Cottage at 16 years old.

But England will face a fight from the French Football Federation for the in-form striker.

France head coach Didier Deschamps has confirmed he watched Dembele against Man City in midweek and is tracking his progress.

In the mean time, Dembele is set to make his debut for the France Under-21s squad next week.
