Celtic will let Porto and Marseille enter into a bidding war as the Scottish Champions will demand an offer of upto £15 million for the French midfielder as Lennon wants to offload Ntcham to help fund his own rebuild for the new season.
The Frenchman has won every domestic honour on offer since he joinedCelticon a permanent deal fromManchester Citytwo season’s ago.
Two domestic treble wins have followed, including helping the Hoops lift an eighth successive Scottish Premiership crown last season.
Ntcham has struggled for playing time this season, partly down to injury, and featured in just 14 league games.
Despite this, the likes of Marseille and Porto are said to be circling and could enter into a buffing war for the star.
Celtic payed £4.5m for the midfielder in 2017 and will demand up to three times that if they are to let him leave, according to France Football.
According to theDaily Record, Porto sent a scout to run the rule over the midfielder while he was playing for France Under-21s against Belgium on Monday night.
Ntcham came off the bench for the last 15 minutes of the win.
But it’s understood that was enough to convince Porto to gear up for another attempt at landing him after their failed bid last summer.
They are however aware of the interest from Marseille and are deciding what to do next.
It is also believe that Ntcham himself might be more open on a move to his native France rather than Portugal.
Porto though can offer him Champions League football, while the French outfit can’t offer any European football.
