Celtic Look To Sign £10m Rated Premier League Striker With Star Ready To Join

Lys Mousset

Celtic are looking into the possibility of signing Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset this summer, according to the Scottish Daily Mail.

The Frenchman is said to be keen on making the switch after seeing the progress of other players like Moussa Dembele who have moved to Parkhead.

The transfer fee will be a major obstacle to Mousset moving north of the border, though, with the Cherries said to be demanding £10m.

The Hoops will not break their transfer record to sign the 23-year-old, and negotiations are likely to involve at least one player moving in the other direction.

Mousset only scored two goals for Bournemouth last season, but it must be said that he made just five starts in the 28 appearances he made for the English Premier League outfit.

Still, he is hardly a prolific goalscorer, having bagged just five in 71 games since moving to the Vitality Stadium from Le Harve for £5.4m two years ago.
