Moussa Dembele's agent claims the £40m-rated Celtic striker is in no rush to leave the Scottish champions, and could see out his four-year contract in Glasgow.

Dembele is in line for a France call-up after scoring 27 times for Celtic under Brendan Rodgers since arriving from Fulham last summer.

The French Under-21 player of the year was linked with a move to Chelsea in the January transfer window while Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have also been linked to the player over the past few weeks, but Dembele's representative Mamadi Fofana said the 20-year-old is enjoying his first season in Scotland.

"Moussa doesn't stress," said Fofana in the Daily Record. "He signed a four-year deal at Celtic and, in his head, he'll be at Celtic for those four years.

"If he has to leave, that will happen at the right time, but it's not in Moussa's head nor my head. In January, there was speculation, but there will always be speculation if he does well.

"Moussa remains cool. He's not affected. I am not even thinking of the future. I don't wake up in the morning thinking where Moussa will go in the summer. The future does not exist. The past has gone."

"It's about being a better player right now. The plan with Brendan and the club and Moussa is private, but I can say it will remain the same and it stays the same."
