Celtic striker Moussa Dembele is still very much a target for Arsenal, according to the Evening Standard.

The Daily Record reported back in April that manager Arsene Wenger was lining up bids for both Dembele and his team mate, left back Kieran Tierney, but there has been no further news since then.

The Standard report that Dembele is still one of the options being considered, although it is likely he is behind both Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and Kylian Mbappe in terms of transfer priorities.

All three Frenchman will be in high demand this summer although, out of the three of them, the Celtic striker will be the cheapest. If the £100m transfer kitty that Standard journalist James Olley quotes is to be believed, then Dembele would be the likeliest to fit into the budget.

The 20 year old has scored 32 goals in 49 games this season for Celtic as the Scottish club went the entire domestic campaign unbeaten.
