Arsenal will send scouts to watch Moussa Dembele in action on Sunday as Celtic take on Rangers in the big clash at Parkhead, according to The Sun.
Dembele has enjoyed a stunning season with Brendan Rodgers’s side and has 32 goals already in all competitions this season.
The 20-year-old is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand youngsters in Europe and Rodgers is tipping him to have a great career.
“Moussa is a big-game player and that’s why he’ll have a really good career,” he said.
“He’s 20 years of age but he knows what he is. He still has work to do but he always turns up in the big games because he has that motivation.
“That’s what big players do – they live for the big games. You can see it in him.

“Having worked with senior players at that level before you need that personality and belief in abundance and he has it.
“He can go into cauldrons and big games with big pressure and those type of players take it on and embrace it and love it. It’s that personality trait – he loves it.”
Dembele has already grabbed five goals agaainst Rangers this season and few will bet against him adding to his tally on Sunday.
Arsenal scouts are reportedly set to be joined from representatives from Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain as the race for his signature hots up.
Dembele only arrived at Celtic last summer from Fulham but has been a huge hit with the Scottish champions.
He was named the Scottish Premiership player of the month for February after scoring six goals and goes into Sunday’s game in red hot form.
Dembele is a thrilling talent and still just 20 clearly has a massive future ahead of him. The report claims he is expected to fetch around £30m and he could be a really exciting addition to the Arsenal squad.
