Karamoko Dembele has been the name on everyone’s lips this week.
The diminutive 13-year-old prospect went viral on Monday night after a photo was taken of him playing for Celtic’s Under-20 side against Hearts.
According to Celtic’s official website, Dembele “didn’t look out of place” against players seven years above his own age group.
It’s understood that the talented starlet is on the radar of a host of top European clubs, including Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Dembele’s former coach, meanwhile, has revealed that he was able to do 100 kick-ups back in 2008 - when he was just five years old.
Dembele's Instagram page is class
A YouTube compilation video did the rounds soon after, showing some of his best moments, but there’s a heck of a lot more gold on his Instagram page.
It features footage of some of his most impressive skills - including one incredible nutmeg - and we’ve compiled the best bits for you in one handy article.

Dembele has impressed everyone with his talent
“From the minute I saw him, he was unbelievable,” his old coach at Villa Boys Club, David Feeny, told The Sun this week. “He was small but had no fear. It all came so easy to him.
“He’d be in a group with kids who couldn’t control the ball without using their hands. At the same time, Karamoko would rattle off 100 keepy-uppies.
“I watched him keep the ball up, volley it miles up before killing it stone dead as it fell out the sky."
It’s clear that Celtic have a very special talent on their hands, although the youngster will know that he has an awful long way to before he becomes a professional.
With more hard work and good coaching, Karaoke Dembele could become a household name over the coming years.
