According to Sky Sports, Werder Bremen are interested in a move for Celtic left back Emilio Izaguirre.

The defender is one of the longest-serving members in the current squad, having made over 200 appearances and winning four league titles since arriving back in 2010.

Last season saw him fall out of favour though, with youngster Kieran Tierney emerging as the first-choice left-back under Ronny Deila.

He has continued to be first choice under new manager Brendan Rodgers, leading to suggestions that Izaguirre will leave the club this summer.

Indeed, according to the Scottish Sun, he is actively looking for a move away in search of first-team football.

And it appears that he may have an offer in Germany, with Sky Sports reporting that Bundesliga side Werder Bremen are interested in his signature.

It now remains to be seen if the German side will make a firm bid before the end of the transfer window.

It will also be interesting to see if Celtic are willing to accept an offer, with Rodgers likely happy to have him as back-up for Tierney in what is gearing up to be a busy campaign.
