Everton & Celtic
A fresh transfer rumour has got Everton fans excited.
Romelu Lukaku is set to leave the Toffees this summer, with the Belgian striker linked with a 100 million pounds move to Chelsea.
Everton look well on their way to replacing their star striker. Davy Klaassen has been signed from Ajax, Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez reportedly passed his medical, while the big new rumour is that Celtic star Moussa Dembele could be moving to Goodison Park.
What’s the story?
The Sun have reported on the Dembele to Everton story, as follows:
Everton are ready to smash their £30 million transfer record to land Moussa Dembele as a direct replacement for Romelu Lukaku.
Celtic would prefer to keep Dembele in Scotland for at least another season although they would find it almost impossible to turn down £30m given they paid Fulham just £400,000 for the player 12 months ago.
Spotted in Liverpool
As rumours of Dembele circle, Everton fans are being attracted to an update on social media claiming that Dembele was actually at Finch Farm on Sunday.
Moussa Dembele was at Finch Farm yesterday. I don't know anything more about it than that. #EFC

If true, it would suggest the Toffees are close to making the deal happen.
The 20-year-old attacker scored an impressive 24 goals in 38 matches for Celtic last season as the Bhoys won the domestic treble.
