Celtic have been handed a boost in their attempts to land Mathias Jorgensen this summer.
According to the Examiner Live, Huddersfield Town are willing to allow the Danish defender to leave the club this summer and pursue a new challenge.
The Hoops have recently been linked with a move for the towering defender, with the Daily Record claiming Jorgensen is an option Neil Lennon is considering this summer.
Jorgensen, who has been with the Yorkshire side since 2017, is reportedly valued at £4m by the Terriers, a fee certainly within Celtic’s price range.
Lennon is in the market for defensive reinforcements across the back line, especially at the heart of the defence, and has been linked with a move for Toulouse central defender Christopher Jullien.
However, a move for the 29-year-old Huddersfield man could be a more realistic option and appears to be one that could well gather pace in the coming weeks.
Four more central defenders Celtic could target
Barnsley’s Lindsay has been on Celtic’s radar in recent months, however, Stoke City are reportedly edging closer to completing a deal. The Hoops may fancy their chances of hijacking the proposed move with a late bid.
If experience is what Lennon is after, Cahill could be just the man. The former England international will be a free transfer when his Chelsea deal expires at the end of the month.
Aberdeen’s McKenna has been a long-term target for the Hoops and would bring plenty of Scottish Premiership experience to Celtic Park.
Regarded as a future star, Celtic have reportedly been tracking Nantes defender Gassama in recent months. The teenager could be a smart signing by the Hoops, however, they will have to battle Watford and Southampton for Gassama’s services.
