Borussia Dortmund ‘join Arsenal in the race to sign 16-year-old Celtic star Karamoko Dembele’

Borussia Dortmund are ‘ready to rival Arsenal‘ for the signature of Celtic wonderkid Karamoko Dembele, according to reports in Germany

The 16-year-old is on the radar of a host of top sides across Europe having made his way through to the first team at Celtic Park. 

His performances went viral when he was just 13 and playing for the club’s Under-20 side and Bild now report Dortmund are keen to push for his signing.

Dembele was handed his senior Celtic debut at the end of last season against Hearts and was swiftly rewarded with a new contract in a bid to diffuse questions over his long-term future.

That contract runs through until 2021 but given he has yet to feature for the first-team this season, interested clubs may feel they can snare him with the offer of regular action. 

Dortmund have a track record of spotting talent before players’ value rockets and they have had rich success since they acquired Jadon Sancho from Manchester City. 

Dembele has featured for Scotland and England at youth levels and is yet to make a decision on his international allegiance as a senior and he could soon have a decision to make on his club future if multiple offers arrive.
