Dembele is widely regarded as one of Celtic’s most exciting academy prospects, and the Hoops will be desperate to keep hold of the teenager.

It would be a huge positive to keep the talented winger at the club and see him star for the first-team in the future, and while a future move may be inevitable given his talent, at least fans would get to see him flourish at Parkhead.

Furthermore, keeping him at the club and ensuring he enjoys a spell in the first-team would also allow Celtic to demand a higher fee for him.

If the likes of Arsenal do come in, however, then Celtic must do all they can to ensure the receive the best possible fee and include a sell on percentage in any deal. 

Will Dembele break into the first-team this season?
