Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers are battling a number of English clubs for non-league striker sensation Reise Allassani, Football Insider sources understand.
Former Crystal Palace youngster Allassani has been earning rave reviews for Bostik League Premier Division side Dulwich Hamlet this season, having scored 17 goals in 16 games.
Scouts from a host of clubs have been keeping tabs on Allassani’s performances this season and his displays have alerted Scottish titans Celtic and Rangers.
Celtic and Rangers see the 22-year-old as someone with huge potential and they are readying moves to try and lure the forward north of the border.
The likes of Championship trio Norwich City, Reading and Barnsley and League One side Gillingham are also chasing Allassani and are weighing up moves for the exciting attacker in this month’s transfer window.
Allassani was close to joining Sheffield Wednesday following his release in 2016 only for a serious knee injury to halt the deal, but he has got his career back on track at Dulwich Hamlet.
Dulwich Hamlet have received a number of enquiries for Allassani’s suitors this month and they are unlikely to stand in the player’s way to make the move back into a higher league.
