Italian giants AC Milan are planning to continue on their summer spending spree with a move for Celtic forward Moussa Dembele.



The France under-21 international joined the Hoops from Fulham for a mere £500,000 last summer and has since become a huge hit at Parkhead.

Dembele amassed 32 goals for Brendan Rodgers' side during the recently concluded season as the Hoops celebrated a domestic treble while going unbeaten through their league campaign.

According to Sky Sports News, the Rossoneri will continue their quest to rebuild the squad following the recent takeover from a Chinese consortium.

The former Serie A champions have already recruited Mateo Musacchio and Franck Kessie from Villareal and Atalanta respectively - the latter on loan and they have now shifted their attention to the Hoops striker.

Milan have already discussed a transfer agreement for the reported Chelsea target and it is suggested that a deal of around £30m could be finalised during the summer transfer window.

The Rossoneri have also set their sights on Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, who is eager for a fresh challenge after playing second fiddle to Karim Benzema this term.
