BRENDAN RODGERS commented on the transfer speculation linking Le Havre defender Harold Moukoudi with a move to Celtic Park before this weeks deadline.
The Irishman was asked about the possibility of Celtic make a moe for the player and if there was anything in it.
Rodgers replied: “I know of the player but there is nothing close in that.”
Most likely meaning, this is a player who the club have identified as a potential signing but have not reached out to the club in France yet with a firm offer.
Celtic are looking at all their options and hoping to bring at least one defender in before the window closes.
Moukoudi, 20, is looking for a move from Le Havre as he has outgrown the Ligue 2 club and believes he can develop better elsewhere.
The defender has been linked with a whole host of clubs this summer but with English teams now out of the running to land him permanently until January – Celtic are in a strong position.
It would likely take €6million to prize him away from Le Havre but the club are willing to sell for the right price.
