Celtic are lining up a move for Norway international Omar Elabdellaoui, according to the Daily Record.

The Olympiakos right-back is valued at £4million and the Hoops are seemingly willing to take a punt on him.

They see him as an ideal man to come in and bolster their squad in January, as they aim to complete an unprecedented ‘treble treble’ this season.

Celtic are searching for a long-term replacement for Mikael Lustig, with the 32-year-old entering the twilight of his career.

Elabdellaoui’s current deal at Olympiakos doesn’t expire until 2021, but Celtic are still confident of getting their man.

Belgium international Timothy Castagne is another option they have looked at, although Atalanta are demanding £10million for his services.

Elabdellaoui started his career at Manchester City, joining the Premier League champions at the age of just 16.

He also spent a spell on loan at Hull City in 2017, so he has experience of British football.
