Celtic reportedly looking to strengthen with the signing of talented 21-year-old midfielder

According to Inside Futbol, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is on the verge of strengthening his team with yet another acquisition as Olivier Ntcham from Manchester City is about to sign for the Hoops.

The website has stated that 90% of the deal is already finished and the value of the whole transfer is believed to be around  €4.5 million. The 21-year-old midfielder has appeared for Man City U-23 46 times, but he never got the opportunity to become the regular first team member.
