The Liverpool Echo are linking Everton with a shock move for Celtic’s star striker Moussa Dembele, as Romelu Lukaku looks set to leave Goodison Park this summer.

Everton are reportedly chasing the French international’s signature after he helped Celtic go unbeaten on their way to the Scottish Premier League title, scoring 32 goals for the club.

The Toffees could be set to break their £30million transfer fee record in their bid to sign the striker.

However Everton face stern competition from Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool who are also reportedly chasing the 21-year-old’s signature.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson believes that Celtic would sell Dembele if they were to receive a tabled bid of around £25million;

I think Celtic will sell Dembele if they get £25million. It’s okay talking about turning it down but when you actually see a bid in black and white and it says £25million then it’s difficult to turn down.

There have been reports that the striker was actually at Finch Farm yesterday, although there are unconfirmed at this stage.
