Fulham striker Moussa Dembele is set to become Brendan Rodgers’ first signing as Celtic boss.

The 19-year-old will undergo a medical before completing his move to the Scottish champions.

Celtic will have to pay around £500,000 in training compensation with his former side Paris Saint Germain receiving half the total.

Dembele forged an impressive partnership with Scottish striker Ross McCormack last season and will now link-up with current Hoops hotshot to lead the line next season.

The forward arrives in Glasgow having been capped for the French national team at every age group from under-16 to under-20, scoring ten goals since 2011.

He spent most of his childhood in the youth academy at Paris Saint Germain, before making the switch to south-west London to Fulham at the age of just 16.

Dembele has spent three seasons in the first-team, including one in the Premier League , albeit with just three appearances.
