According to The Scottish Sun, French club Lille are interested in signing 25-year-old central defender Simunovic from Celtic this summer.

 

As reported by BBC Sport, McKenna wanted to leave Aberdeen amid interest in him from Queens Park Rangers and Nottingham Forest in the Championship in England.

With the summer transfer window in England now closed, the 22-year-old Scotland international defender will not be moving there this month.

Boyd wrote in The Scottish Sun: “If Celtic sell Jozo Simunovic to Lille, I wouldn’t be surprised if they moved for McKenna.”

Good signing for Celtic?

McKenna is one of the best and most promising young central defenders in the Scottish Premiership, and the 22-year-old can only get better in the coming years.

Celtic could do with the Scotsman in their team, and McKenna will be more than a suitable replacement for Simunovic.
