Rangers officials have reportedly been watching Peterborough United attacker Siriki Dembele, ahead of a potential move to sign the exciting winger.
According to the Peterborough Telegraph, the Scottish Premiership leaders have joined a long queue of clubs looking to sign the impressive winger in the near future.
Celtic have been long-term admirers of the player, who is the older brother of Karamoko Dembele.
Premier League duo Fulham and Newcastle United have watched the player, while Championship side Stoke City are also among his potential suitors.
Dembele has found the back of the net five times in 17 league appearances this season and has 18 months left on his current deal with the League One side.
A star of the future
Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony has labelled the player as the ‘best player in League One’, with Dembele widely known as a talent for the future.
The report claims that the club would expect a fee of at least £2million for the winger, so any deal that Rangers may pursue is unlikely to be cheap.
With Dembele now 24, he will no doubt be looking to take the next step in his career.
The prospect of him battling up against his younger brother at Celtic Park in the years to come could make a move to Scotland a very exciting one for the winger.
Dembele is clearly proving to be a difficult customer to stop in League One – he is averaging 10 dribbles per 90 minutes and is drawing nearly four fouls, according to Wyscout.
With Kemar Roofe in such good form of late, a move to sign a more natural winger could allow the former to play in his more natural position through the middle.
