Sky whispers: 32-goal striker storming the league is most likely player to join Tottenham this summer
By Harry Sykes
Celtic goal machine Moussa Dembele is the most likely player to join Tottenham in the summer transfer window, according to a report.
There have been recent reports that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to sanction a summer swoop for the £30million-rated prolific front man.
The Sun claimed last month Spurs are the frontrunners to win the signature of Dembele, who has taken the Scottish league by storm during a sensational debut campaign.
It is said that a deal is on the cards for the France Under-21 international to join Pochettino’s side and that the transfer is expected to go through when the summer window opens.

Dembele is contracted to Celtic until the summer of 2020 and manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that it is unlikely that he will see out this agreement.
Football Whispers, which gathers all transfer rumours across the globe and calculates the likelihood of them happening, rates it 3.4 out of 5 that Dembele will join Tottenham, with five the highest possible ranking and meaning it is a certainty.
The Frenchman is ahead in the ratings of Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Christian Pulisic, who has a rating of 2.9, and Schalke central midfielder Leon Goretzka, whose rating of moving to north London is 2.6.
Dembele has made a huge impact at Celtic since joining on a free transfer last summer after his Fulham contract had expired.
He has scored 32 goals and supplied seven assists in 48 matches in all competitions for the runaway Scottish Premiership leaders and is one of the main contenders to win the player of the year in his adopted country.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club have sensationally terminated the contract of one of their defenders.
