Celtic, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County are among a host of sides interested in signing Peterborough United attacker Siriki Dembele, according to TEAMtalk.
The 23-year-old has become a key player for Posh recently, with Darren Ferguson converting him from a tricky winger into a hotshot striker earlier this year.
Dembele has started the 2020/21 campaign in great form, notching five goals in 12 games and forming a prolific partnership with Ivan Toney’s replacement Jonson Clarke-Harris.
His performances have been noticed though by several teams higher up in the English footballing pyramid.
TEAMtalk believe that Wolves, Crystal Palace, Brentford, Derby and Queens Park Rangers have all been tracking the 5ft 8in attacker, but the Bhoys are the team that are seemingly trying hardest of all to capture Dembele.
It’s not only for his abilities on the pitch, but they reportedly believe that bringing Siriki in could tempt his younger brother Karamoko to sign a long-term deal with the club.
The 17-year-old is arguably Celtic’s brightest young talent and getting the chance to play with his older brother would surely convince him to stick around at the Hoops.
There are some naturally gifted players in League One, but Dembele might be the most talented of them all.
A low centre of gravity, extremely quick and very technical, there’s a lot to like about the Peterborough number 10, and Darragh MacAnthony must be salivating at the prospect of a bidding war ensuing.
The aforementioned teams such as Celtic, Wolves, Brentford and others have lots of money behind them, and whilst Dembele may not fetch between the £10 million that Ivan Toney’s deal could reach one day, he’s no doubt going to make Peterborough a lot of money.
