Arsenal watch Dembele

Arsenal had their scouts in attendance to watch Moussa Dembele during Celtic's 3-3 draw against Manchester City in the Champions League. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were also keeping an eye on the striker.

The 20-year-old has been a revelation for the Scottish champions since his arrival from Championship side Fulham in the summer transfer window.

Dembele was the subject of interest from a whole host of English clubs over the summer with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool being his main admirers, but he opted to join the Hoops in the bid to earn regular first-team football.

According to The Sun, the Gunners were tracking the performance of Dembele, a player who has been on Arsene Wenger's radar for somewhile.

The former Paris Saint-Germain graduate amassed a brace versus high-flying Manchester City in a game which ended all square at Park Head.

Dembele has already netted 12 goals in 16 outings for Brendan Rodgers' side this season.
