BREAKING: Chelsea Make Move For Celtic's Moussa Dembele

The January transfer window is due to close tomorrow night as clubs across the Premier League, and beyond, tie up any deals ahead of the second half of the season.

And it appears Antonio Conte has expressed a desire to sign Celtic's prolific striker Moussa Dembele this month, according to Sky Sports. Though Celtic are reluctant to sell their main man while slapping a whopping £40 million price tag.

But according to reports in France, the 20-year-old is set to turn down the advances from the Premier League side as he wishes to remain in the Scottish top flight.

Chelsea aren't the only club keeping tabs on the talented Frenchman. Paris Saint-Germain have also made a play for him with their director of Football Patrick Kluivert a big fan.

Dembele was attracting plenty of interest while playing for Fulham where he rose to prominence. Spurs were reportedly very close to signing him before he opted for a move north of the border.

The Glasgow-based club paid a nominal £500,000 development fee to sign Dembele after his contract at Fulham expired last summer. And he's since scored an impressive 20 goals in 38 appearances.
