Promising youngster reveals: "This is why I rejected Arsenal and Chelsea"


New Celtic striker Moussa Dembele says the possibility of enjoying regular first team football in next season's Champions League is the reason why he rejected offers from other European clubs.

Recent reports have claimed that the 19-year-old was a target for Arsenal and Chelsea.

But he opted to move to Celtic Park after signing a four-year contract with the Scottish club.

"I had a few offers but I didn't have the same one I had with Celtic in terms of football," he is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"I think it's the best place for me to be.

"I signed for Celtic because it's a massive club in Europe.

"I want to play in the Champions League and I think I can do this here. It would be special.

"As a young boy you always dream of playing in the Champions League.

"We have a chance to do that this season.

"It's up to us, we have to win the qualifiers.

"I want to score goals, I'm a striker. I want to score goals and win trophies because Celtic is a club that wins trophies.

"I came to Celtic to improve. I was in the Championship and I've come to the Scottish Premiership.

"I see my future here and hopefully I can score a lot of goals for the club and win many trophies."
