The Sun claimed last week that Celtic wanted Arsenal youngster Jordi Osei-Tutu.

The report added that the 20-year-old was eyeing a move to Germany and therefore a switch to Parkhead didn't seem probable.

But if reports in Germany are true, Celtic might have an opportunity to swoop now.

According to Revier Sport, talks between Arsenal and Bochum for the right-back have 'probably burst' because the Gunners wanted to stipulate in his loan contract that he plays a minimum number of games.

 

If true and Bochum are out of the picture, what a chance it could be for Celtic - providing Neil Lennon is willing to play him in a certain amount of games, as per Arsenal's reported demands.

The Hoops will definitely need a new right-back it seems after Mikael Lustig hinted on Instagram that he's set to leave.

Lustig, out of contract this month, posted an emotional montage of his best bits since joining the Scottish giants seven years ago in what is a major indication that he won't be sticking around.
