Young Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo is being allowed a loan move this summer, according to a report.
The Daily Mail have claimed on their website on Thursday that the 19-year-old, who agreed a new £40,000-a-week contract earlier in the week will be made available for a temporary transfer away from Manchester.
It is detailed that a host of Premier League and Championship clubs are eyeing the teenager with clubs from Germany also monitoring him.
The report also specifically mentions both Celtic and Everton, who are said to had previously shown an interest in Adarabioyo before his future was secured for Pep Guardiola’s team.
It is not detailed whether they will now reignite their interest, but the Hoops have previously dealt with Manchester City, where they signed trio Patrick Roberts, John Guidetti and Dedryck Boyata in recent years.
Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman may look to add a fresher face to his back-line containing veteran duo Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka, but he is unlikely to bring in a player who will not sign for the long-term.
Football Insider verdict:
Adarabioyo is certainly the sort of signing Celtic would look to make, as they have previously shown in Roberts, who proved a great asset to the Hoops’ team. However, Everton are unlikely to want to develop a young player before then allowing him to move back to his parent club with no chance of signing him again in a permanent transfer. Therefore, the Glasgow giants should certainly consider making another move for the highly-rated prospect, while Everton would be better suited looking elsewhere at a young centre-back who can form a part of their defence for years to come.
In other Celtic transfer news, the Hoops have made a seven-figure bid for this teenage defender.
