Celtic are interested in signing right-back Musa Mohammed from Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir, according to a report.

Nigerian international Mohammed still has two years remaining on his contract after he signed for Basaksehir last summer.

African football website African Football claim that the agency who transferred Efe Ambrose to Celtic want to agree a deal for Mohammed to follow suit.

It is said that Rodgers will have to move quickly to land the 19-year-old as French side Lorient are also showing a firm interest.

“Those who moved Efe Ambrose to Celtic from Israel now wish to take Musa to the same club,” the source was reported as saying by African Football. “It will be a very good move for a very promising player like Musa.”

Mohammed is no stranger to being linked with a move to a big European club, with the Flying Eagles captain reportedly being linked with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United when he was 16.

He has also been linked with Norwegian outfit Rosenborg and German side Hamburg in the past.

Celtic fans will get a glimpse of Mohammed for the first time when he competes for his country at the Rio Olympic games in just over a month’s time.

Mohammed recently made his full Super Eagles debut in a 1-0 win over Mali.

In other Celtic news, Rodgers has launched an ultimatum to one of his key players.
