Arsenal have scouted Moussa Dembele again as they join Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the chase for the Celtic wonderkid, reports The Sun.
The former Fulham striker has been in fine form since his summer move to Scotland, scoring five goals in the last three game in all competitions for the Premiership champions and netted a hat-trick in the Old Firm derby a few weeks ago.
Arsene Wenger was linked with Dembele in the summer along with North London rivals Tottenham.
But Dembele and agent Mamadi Fofana settled on Celtic instead.
And Rodgers made it clear he intends to hold onto Dembele.
He said: “We’re fortunate to have him. He was coveted by a number of teams but his agent is a clever guy.
Does he go to a so-called better league and sit on the bench and not get so many games?
“Or does he come to a big club with an opportunity to develop and invest some time into his development, and then step up if that’s what he wants to do?
“He really bullied the back four, but he’s more than that – he’s got a wonderful touch.
“You saw his agility for the third goal. He’s a huge talent.”
