Celtic sell-on boost as Premier League club ready £30m Dembele bid

MOUSSA DEMBELE is being linked with a move to English Premier League side West Ham. The Scottish Sun are claiming that David Moyes’ side are keen on a £30m deal. This could be good news for the Scottish Champions as it would result in a sell-on clause being activated, giving Celtic funds.

The 24-year-old moved to Lyon in 2018 and has been a success but since the French side have failed to qualify for Europe this season, Dembele was linked with a number of clubs. However, West Ham might be a drop down for Moussa.

In the 9IAR celebrations earlier this year, Dembele called Celtic ‘the greatest club in the world’. Dembele was a fan favourite instantly with a hat-trick against Rangers at Celtic Park. He scored 51 goals in 94 appearances across the two seasons, winning six trophies during his trophy-laden spell in Glasgow.

Celtic are believed to have a 15% sell-on fee for Dembele, which would rake in a multi-million windfall as it would be taken off of Lyon’s profit of the deal. A potential multi-million windfall would be perfect for Celtic at the moment given the strain that COVID-19 has put on Scottish football. It also would allow the club to position themselves better when the inevitable interest for our star players come.
