CELTIC central defender Jozo Simunovic has been linked with a move to Serie A outfit Lazio.
The Bosnian international is one of several stars the Italians are considering during the January transfer window.
Crystal Palace have been reported to be mulling over an £8million deal for Simunovic while long-term admirers Burnley are monitoring the situation.
Simunovic hasn’t featured since the 4-0 defeat against Hearts at Tynecastle and lost his place to Norwegian teenager Kristoffer Ajer for the remaining four games of last year.
The 23-year-old centre-half has made 19 appearances in all competitions this season and joined the Hoops from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015.
No bids have been received for the player who has not played since the 4-0 defeat to Hearts last month. Simunovic if rumours are to be believed is looking for a Parkhead exit and if any of the clubs mentioned match the Celtic valuation then he’ll be away.
