Celtic have set their sights on Olympiakos right-back Omar Elabdellaoui report The Scottish Sun.

Elabdellaoui made his name in Manchester City's academy before leaving in search of first team football.

 

The Scottish Sun's report claims Celtic are planning a move for the defender, who is rated at £4 million.

Elabdellaoui has won three league titles with Olympiakos in the Greek Super League after joining in 2014 and is bidding to win a fourth this season.

He had a loan spell at Hull City two years ago, and while at City he spent time at clubs in Norway, Holland and Germany.

The 27-year-old is a Norway international, where he is a teammate of Celtic ace Kristoffer Ajer.

Celtic are in need of signing a right-back, with Mikael Lustig not the player he once was.

Having signed two strikers and a winger, fans will welcome the club addressing the position, although the jury is out on whether Elabdellaoui is the best option.
