Dembele has emerged as a late target for Chelsea ahead of tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Celtic are demanding £40million to sell the 20-year-old in January, having signed him for just £500,000 from Fulham last summer.
And Dembele sparked fears on Twitter he could be on his way to Chelsea after being pictured apparently on a flight to London this morning.
Twitter user Guy Goma posted a snap captioned: “Big Moussa on my flight to London…. Don't do it big man!!! #celtic #MoussaDembele.

Fans were quick to suggest the picture was a fake, before user Mr.BlueGuy posted a similar pic of Dembele captioned: “Not fake it seems.”
However, it may just be a big coincidence with London Evening Standard journalist Tom Collomosse saying Dembele is heading to the capital because of an injury.
“Believe Moussa Dembele may be travelling to London today. At this stage, it would be for a meeting with a specialist about a knee problem,” he said.
Scottish Sun writer Robert Grieve added: “Moussa Dembele flew to London this morning…for a scan on his injured knee.”
