CELTIC striker Moussa Dembele is in contention for France’s Young Player of the Year award.
The 17-goal Hoops hitman has been nominated for the prestigious 2016 title which is sponsored by popular French show Telefoot.
Dembele, 20, has been a revelation since arriving at Parkhead from Fulham in the summer.
He netted three times in the Champions League and bagged four goals against Comedy Club Sevco Rangers, including a hat-trick during the 5-1 landslide in the Premiership in the east end of Glasgow on September 10.
The powerful attacker, who cost a mere £500,000 development fee, also made an impact at international level, scoring four times for France Under-21s, including a double in his nation’s 3-2 win over England.
Dembele, who agreed a four-year deal at the champions, faces some stiff competition from the likes of Old Trafford ace Anthony Martial, PSG’s Adrien Rabiot and Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele.
