Celtic striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly in advanced discussions over a move to AC Milan after the Serie A club scheduled a second meeting with the player's representatives.

The France under-21 international bagged 32 goals during his maiden season in the Scottish football, and this helped the Hoops clinch a domestic treble while going unbeaten through the league campaign.

Arsenal, and Chelsea have previously expressed an interest in the former Fulham mad, but it appears that the Rossoneri are in pole position to land the highly-rated prospect.

The one-time Serie A giants are hoping to revive their title hopes next season following the recent takeover from a Chinese consortium, who are willing to spend big in the transfer window.

Milan have already recruited Mateo Musacchio and Franck Kessie to strengthen the defensive and midfield departments respectively, and they are now on the lookout for a striker capable of leading the line.

Dembele will have the opportunity of contesting for Champions League football under Brendan Rodgers next term, but a £30m transfer sum could be hard to turn down for the Scottish champions.
