Celtic will demand up to £15 million for Olivier Ntcham this summer as France Football links the skilful midfielder with a move to Marseille.

The former Manchester City youngster became Celtic’s most expensive signing in ten years when he arrived at Parkhead in 2017, the Premiership champions paying £4 million for a player who was tipped to make a huge impact in Scotland.

 

But while Ntcham has won six trophies in green and white, he struggled for form during an injury-hit second season. Despite his erratic displays across 2018/19, however, there are still plenty of major European clubs showing an interest in the 23-year-old.
