Peterborough United forward Siriki Dembele wants to play for “a bigger club” amid interest from Fulham, Sheffield United, Nottingham Forest and Celtic.

That is according to former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 24-year-old’s future at London Road.

Football Insider understands that the winger, who handed in a transfer request earlier this month, could be available for as little as £500,000 this month.

Dembele has contributed six goals and seven assists in 25 appearances across all competitions this season.

He has been one of Peterborough’s standout performers over the past three years and his eye-catching displays have attracted the attention of some of Britain’s biggest clubs.

As revealed by this site on Monday, Sheffield United, Fulham and Nottingham Forest are preparing bids for the forward who is also a target of Celtic and Rangers.

When asked for his assessment of Dembele’s future, Campbell told Football Insider:

“Dembele clearly wants to play at a higher level. He wants to play for a bigger club.

“It is his right to hand in a transfer request. He wants to better himself and move on so it will be interesting where he ends up.” 

Speaking on Dembele earlier this month, Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony said: “It is what it is. We get on with it.

“Every player in League One is for sale, but unless we get the right offer no players go anywhere. That’s just the way it is.”
