According to reports, Celtic are lining up a bid for Manchester City youngster Olivier Ntcham.

Brendan Rodgers is a fan of the player even though he has not broken into the City first team and who has spent the past two seasons on loan with Italian club Genoa.

During his time with the Serie A club, the Frenchman played 37 times and scored three goals to attract the interest of Rodgers.

The 21-year-old Ntcham Is now back at the Etihad Stadium and Brendan Rodgers is looking to add him to the Hoops side ahead of next season.

Ntcham joined the Citizens from French club Le Havre in 2015 for £1million on a five year contract. He was never really part of the club’s first team plans and was sent out on loan to Le Havre in order to gain more first team experience.

There is a strong chance that Ntcham move to Celtic will go ahead this summer.
