?Chelsea are preparing a move for 16-year-old Celtic starlet Karamoko Dembélé once their transfer ban is lifted.

The youngster, who is eligible to represent Scotland, England or the Ivory Coast at international level, recently made the switch to the Three Lions and netted his first goal for the Under-17 side in a 1-1 draw with Spain in October.

Should that happen, Chelsea could even launch a bid for Dembélé in January, although they are prepared to wait until the summer if their ban is not brought to an end.

Since then, Dembélé has gone on to feature for the senior side this season, and 90min has learned that ?Chelsea are eager to test Celtic's resolve with a bid as soon as they are permitted to do so.

They brought young striker Islam Feruz down from Celtic back in 2011, while they also struck a deal to sign Billy Gilmour from Rangers in 2017.

The Blues are currently under a transfer ban which is set to last until the summer of 2020, although they will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 20 November, which could see their ban lifted in time for the January transfer window.
