Scottish treble winners Celtic will reject any offers for their star forward Moussa Dembele until their Champions League fate is known according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The former Fulham man has been the subject of interest from many big clubs in Europe recently, with AC Milan the last huge name to be linked with the France Under-21 international over the weekend.

Dembele had a wonderful first season at Celtic Park where he won three domestic honours, scored 32 goals in 49 appearances in total including a famous double against Manchester City in a 3-3 Champions League draw.

AC Milan join the likes of Chelsea, Sevilla, Marseille and Borussia Dortmund to have had registered an interest in the 20-year-old but the Bhoys are adamant that they won’t listen to any offers until they finish their qualifying campaign for Europe’s premier competition.

Celtic, who are said to rate Dembele at £30 million, hope the striker will spearhead their assault on the Champions League qualifiers which begin next month.

The Frenchman is in the middle of a four-year contract at Celtic Park and appears happy to be at the club despite all the interest in his services.

When questioned on the future of his young star Bhoys boss Brendan Rodgers was confident his squad would remain intact ahead of the new season with the necessary reinforcements arriving to give them the best chance of making the Champions League group stage with the giants of Europe once again.
