Celtic are likely to snub any sort of interest in their biggest asset but a move to the Premier League could prove to be too enticing for Dembele.
However, the incredible success of young English players that have moved to Germany could also be a factor in Dembele’s decision.
The best thing for him to do currently is remain focused on playing and developing.
