CELTIC are lining up a move for Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Moussa Sissako.

Neil Lennon is looking to strengthen his defence and is considering a move for the highly-rated 19-year-old Mali Under-23 international, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Sissako has been on the Hoops boss’ radar since a UEFA Youth League encounter with the French giants in 2017.

Last January, the champions brought in Timothy Weah from PSG in a loan deal until the end of the season.

And they arranged a temporary switch for striker Odsonne Edouard before sealing a club record £9million fee in July 2018.

Sissako has reportedly no place in coach Thomas Tuchel’s first-team plans and could leave this month if a sell-on arrangement can be agreed with potential buyers.

Lennon has been without the services of Croatian central defender Jozo Simunovic for most of the campaign after he underwent knee surgery and has been forced to play midfielder Nir Bitton and right-back Hatem Abd Elhamed in the middle of the rearguard.

Christopher Jullien arrived in a £7million move from Toulouse in the summer and the Irishman may raid the French market again for reinforcements.
