CELTIC are involved in a three-way transfer tug-of-war for South Korea international winger Song Min-kyu.

The Hoops will plunge into the January market with boss Ange Postecoglou admitting he will be looking at specific requirements.

The Parkhead side are poised to get involved in race with Serie A outfit Udinese and Turkish giants Fenerbahce to sign the £1.2million-rated Min-kyu, according to reports in South Korea.

The 22-year-old forward, who can also operate in midfield, moved to champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in the summer, but his consistent displays have caught the attention of several European clubs.

GOAL THREAT…Yokohama F Marinos striker Daizen Maeda has been linked with former boss Ange Postecoglou.

Min-kyu made his international debut in his nation’s 5-0 World Cup qualifying win over Sri Lanka in June and has picked up another five caps since his first appearance.

Postecoglou has been linked with numerous targets in the next window, one being his former Yokohama F Marinos striker Daizen Maeda, as CQN reported last week.

The Glasgow club have had success in the South Korean market in the past after signing midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng from FC Seoul in 2010 who spent two seasons at the club before his £6million switch to Swansea. He also had spells at Newcastle and Sunderland.

The Hoops also landed 76 times-capped right-back Cha Du-Ri who spent two seasons at the club before moving to Fortuna Dusseldorf in 2012.
