Celtic Set To Request Quote For French Wonderkid

Posted by

Celtic have placed teenage Reading winger Michael Olise on a list of potential transfer targets as Lennon looks to strengthen his 10 in a row squad.

Newly promoted to the Premier League, Leeds have been chasing Olise for a permanent move this summer, however, it has now been reported that there is also interest from the Scottish champions.

A France under-18 international, left-sided Olise made 14 appearances for the Royals before the lockdown forced football into cold storage.

The teenager made his debut against potential suitors Leeds during a 3-0 defeat in March 2019 at the Madejski Stadium and has since cemented his place amongst the first-team squad.

With Celtic requiring depth for such an important season ahead, Lennon could be aiming to use a player like Olise to cover the likes of Forrest and Elyounoussi as Mikey Johnston is currently out injured.

It would be interesting to see what kind of figure Reading will quote the Scottish Champions as the young Frenchman still has two years left on his current deal.

There are many targets being linked with Celtic at the moment and we will just have to wait and see who the 9 in a row winning manager will recruit.
