Another Paris Saint-Germain youngster in Moussa Sissako could reportedly be heading to the Scottish Premiership with Neil Lennon’s Celtic monitoring his progress with the French club.
The Glasgow club have reportedly entered talks with Paris Saint-Germain about a potential January deal for highly-rated defender, according to a report from the Daily Mail (2 January, page 80).
As reported by the Daily Mail (2 January, page 80), talks are underway already over a move which would see Sissako swap the champions of France for the champions of Scotland.
It’s very obvious that the youngster is well down the pecking order at PSG and, after failing to force his way into Thomas Tuchel’s first-team folds, is free to pack his luggages this month.
Celtic have held talks, the report adds, but the stumbling blocks per the report is that PSG are keen to include a sell-on clause in the teenager’s contract should he make the move to Britain in the next few weeks.
Sissako would find regular minutes far easier to come by in green and white rather than warming the bench at Parc des Princes.
With Jack Hendry an out of favour and Jozo Simunovic out injured yet again, Celtic look a little light at the back with Christopher Jullien and Kristoffer Ajer starting almost every game in league and cup of late.
Sissako signing would not come cheap for Celtic, however, with the Northern Echo reporting that PSG demanded an eye-watering £2 million when Newcastle United showed an interest over the summer.
For a defensive talent with the world at his feet, at least according to PSG’s youth coach Francois Rodrigues, the reported £2 million could be a very well spent.
