Celtic are keen on former Manchester United talent.
Celtic are planning a summer move for Wigan star Nick Powell.
The Sun (4/2 page 60) report Celtic are big admirers of the former Crewe trainee and want to sign him this summer.
It is claimed they were prepared to swoop late in the transfer window if they were pushed into selling striker Moussa Dembele.
Powell was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for Manchester United in 2012 and tipped as a future England international.
Despite scoring on his debut he struggled to break through and was affected by Ferguson's retirement the following summer.
He is in good form for Wigan this season and has scored 11 goals in 25 games.
Still only 23, there is likely to be big interest in Powell this summer and Celtic could have a real edge on their competitors, by being able to offer Champions League football.
