Celtic wonderkid Karamoko Dembele has been tagged as Scotland’s version of Lionel Messi, as the 14-year-old stuns all with his skills, pace and Messi-like dribbles.

Reports from Scotland claim Chelsea are trying to prise the highly rated teenager Karamoko Dembele away from Celtic this summer.

The youngster is labelled as one of most exciting young talents in British football and has been above his peers at youth level.

At just the age of 13, he was already playing for Celtic’s Under-20 side, and has caught the eyes of Europe’s bigwigs such as Chelsea and Manchester City.

Chelsea have already snapped up 16-year-old Billy Gilmour from Rangers and look set to do same for Karamoko Dembele.

Dembele is eligible for both England and Scotland, but turned out for the Scottish youth team and played against the Three Lions in a 2-0 win on Friday.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
