BARCELONA are set to splash the cash ahead of the Champions League with a huge bid for Dembele.

But worried Celtic fans will be relieved to learn that it is Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele the Spanish giants are after and not Hoops striker Moussa!

Dortmund have already knocked back a bid from Barca for the 20-year-old winger – believed to be 100m euros (£92m) – earlier this month.

Now Barca are back and are keen to get their man after selling Neymar to PSG for 222m euros.

The deal when it goes through will make Dembele the second most expensive footballer on the planet, behind Neymar who will be back at Celtic Park for his usual warm reception on the opening night of the Champions League next month.

Ousmane Dembele arrived at Dortmund from Rennes for 15m euros (£13.8m) 12 months ago, having only made his professional debut in 2015.

Dembele has already made seven appearances for the France, scoring his first goal in a 3-2 win over England in June.

He scored 10 goals last season and provided 21 assists as Dortmund finished third in the league, won the German Cup and also reached the Champions League quarter-finals.
