Nottingham Forest have also been linked with the 20-year-old in the past.

Egyptian football giants Al Ahly will listen to offers for their star player Mahmoud 'Trezeguet' Hassan. The 20-year-old talent has had a breakthrough season this term and it is now reported by KingFut that he will be available this summer if a team is willing to meet the price-tag for the player.

The club are in financial difficulties and Trezegut is one of their marquee players, so they feel he will raise the most funds if sold.

The news might come as music to the ears of both Celtic and Nottingham Forest - as both have been linked with his signature.

In December 2013 both Celtic and Nottingham Forest were linked by Goal.com after he impressed in the Under 20 World Cup.

In January last year the player himself insisted to the Daily Record that he wanted a move to Celtic - and that it was imminent.

No deal ever came to fruition, but it now seems he is available once again.

Hassan, an enigmatic midfield talent, has been in great form this season. He made his international debut for Egypt in August of last year and scored a fantastic strike against Equatorial Guinea in March.
