KARAMOKO DEMBELE burst onto the scene with a second half cameo versus Hearts in May 2019. The then 16-year-old gave Aaron Hickey a torrid time down Celtic’s right hand side and has since been tipped for the very top.

At just 17, Dembele has been included in FIFA 21’s Hidden Gem list, compiled by Talksport. The England youth internationalist is 7th on their list and it is believed that he can go from 64 rated on the game to as high as 85.

Dembele has struggled for game time under Neil Lennon in recent times with the youngster being tipped to move on with Manchester City and Chelsea linked with an interest. Dembele played in the Europa League defeat to Cluj in December, becoming the youngest Celtic player in a European competition.

Elsewhere, in the latest release of Football Manager, Celtic are rated £30m more than Rangers with Shane Duffy being given the highest worth of any Scottish Premiership player. The on-loan Brighton defender has had a tough start to life in Glasgow but the game has valued him at £14m. The next best valued player is Moi Elyounoussi at £9.75m.
