Celtic target Christopher Jullien would be an exciting addition

Celtic are reportedly interested in defender Christopher Jullien from French top-flight club Toulouse.

According to L’Equipe, the 26-year-old enforcer is on the Bhoys radar this summer as manager Neil Lennon eyes reinforcements at centre-back.

The report details that he could cost between £7million and £8.9million to prize away this summer from Ligue 1.

 

The Scottish giants need to recruit well in the heart of defence for next season, where Jozo Simunovic and Kristoffer Ajer need strong competition for places.

He is a towering 6ft 5in French defender that is excellent in the air in both boxes and has a physical presence about him that would serve him well in Scotland.

The ball-playing centre-back is confident in possession and is a great passer of the ball with both feet too.

Jullien looks an ideal replacement for Celtic loanee Filip Benkovic next season and he could even be an upgrade.

Lennon needs to ensure that the club has a strong transfer window to give them every chance of extending their domestic dominance and it’s also key to try make some progress in European competitions too.
