HAMBURG star Lewis Holtby has warned Celtic fans Moussa Dembele could be on his way at the end of the season!
The midfielder was a team-mate of the French Under-21 international at Fulham in 2014 and tipped him as a future star.

Dembele has been a sensation since his move to the Hoops and netted his 13th goal of the campaign with a slick penalty-kick against Motherwell at the weekend. He also claimed a double in the 3-3 Champions League thriller against Manchester City and a hat-trick in the 5-1 pummelling of Sevco Rangers.

Holtby believes Brendan Rodgers won’t be able to keep his former Craven Cottage chum at Parkhead if he continues to blast away opponents.
Holtby, who played against the Hoops’ Champions League opponents, Borussia Monchengladbach, in the goalles Bundesliga draw on Saturday, said: “In Dembele up front, Celtic have a real threat as he proved against Manchester City.

“I played alongside Moussa at Fulham and he’s a big talent. A lot of good things have been said about him and I think it’s justified with his ability.img_2479.jpg

“I knew the first time I saw him that he was a bit special. He was very young at Fulham when I was there, maybe only 18 years old.

“But you could see his power even back then. He’s so strong and he’s got a great eye in front of goal.

“He can bury chances, he’s proved that already this season by scoring goals against City.

“This could be his last season at Celtic, I really believe that. If he keeps scoring goals, with his age, it could well be his last year there.

“Everything is rocketing for Moussa right now. He’s scoring goals for Celtic and the French Under-21 team.

“He’s got a great manager now in Brendan Rodgers, he knows how to keep young players determined and Moussa’s got that.

“He’ll go on to have a great career, there’s no doubt about that.”

Dembele, 20, agreed a four-year deal with the Champions when he arrived for a £500,000 development fee in the summer. The player stated at the weekend that he was planning on staying at Celtic for the long term.
Boss Rodgers has already joked about £18million just about being enough to buy the big toe on his left foot!
