Brendan Rodgers has this evening confirmed that Celtic have rejected a “significant offer” for striker Moussa Dembele from Lyon.
The Celtic manager told BBC Scotland: “We have had a significant offer for Moussa Dembele which has been rejected; he’s a player we don’t want to lose, it’s as simple as that.”
Dembele is not involved for tonight’s game. He has agreed personal terms in the range of 100,000 Euros a week with the French side who this evening were drawn in the same Champions League Group as Manchester City.
Lyon are prepared to go to £22.5million to secure the signing of the Celtic striker and it is probable that this will all be concluded tomorrow before the window closes at midnight.
