Celtic hitman Moussa Dembele a target for English FA to represent national team
CELTIC striker Moussa Dembele is at the centre of a tug-of-war between England and France over his international future.
The 20-year-old hotshot is one of a number of young foreign stars whose eligibility to play for England is being explored.
The hope is that the top talent coming through the academy system at English clubs could be persuaded to represent the Three Lions.
Dembele will complete the requisite five years of residency in the UK next year, having joined Fulham at the age of 16.
