Boubakar Kouyate has emerged as another Celtic transfer target as Lennon looks to strengthen his defence as Kris Ajer could be leaving Glasgow this summer.

The 23-year-old just missed out on promotion from Ligue 2 with current French club Troyes.

Troyes have had bids for Kouyate but they fall short of the player’s value and this could open up the door for a Celtic bid.

Celtic are thought to be making more of an effort to sign the defender and are in poll position to land him whenever the window opens.

The Scottish champions have a good reputation with French clubs and already have a few players in the squad also. (source)

The French club are hoping to sell Kouyate for £4.5 million as there seems to be lookers from Germany also interested.
