According to The Sun, Fulham are preparing a £25million move for Celtic star Kieran Tierney in the hope of pairing him with Ryan Sessegnon down their left flank.

The Cottagers have enjoyed a strong summer so far following their promotion to the Premier League, as they have brought in Besiktas goalkeeper Fabricio, Borussia Dortmund's German World Cup winner Andre Schurrle as well as Nice duo Maxime Le Marchand and Jean Seri.

Slavisa Jokanovic is being backed with signings upon the club's return to the club flight, and whilst The Express report that a £25million move for Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson is moving closer, more money could be splashed out yet.

The Sun report that Fulham now have their sights set on Celtic talent Kieran Tierney, and could attempt to launch a £25million bid for him before next month's transfer deadline.

Tierney, 21, has become a star for Celtic over the last three years, racking up more than 130 appearances whilst winning three league titles and nine caps for Scotland, despite being born in the Isle of Man.

Tierney is now widely regarded as one of the top young left backs in world football, and whilst some clubs have backed away from Celtic's £25million valuation, Fulham appear ready to try their luck.

Kieran Tierney of Celtic is seen during the Scottish Premier League between Celtic and Kilmarnock at Celtic Park on May 9, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

It's claimed that they want to create a stunning partnership down the left flank between Tierney and 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon, with Fulham looking to pair up two of British football's brightest young prospects in an ambitious move.

Celtic won't want to lose Tierney, especially so close to the transfer deadline, but with Fulham desperate for a new left back and struggling to sign Matt Targett from Southampton, they may well launch a big-money move to pair Tierney up with their own home grown talent Sessegnon at Craven Cottage.

Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham looks on during the pre-season friendly between Reading and Fulham at the EBB Stadium on July 14, 2018 in Aldershot, England.
