Celtic defender Bosun Lawal is attracting transfer interest from Brentford as well as some Italian sides [Daily Mail].

The 19-year-old defender has been on the verge of a Hoops breakthrough and was part of the squad which travelled over to Sydney during the World Cup break.

Lawal is attracting interest from English Premier League side Brentford who have a very thorough way of scouting players from data and other information.

Italian sides Hellas Verona and Pisa are also keeping tabs on the Irishman who signed from Watford last season and impressed in the Hoops B team in the lowland league.

He was rewarded with a place on the Celtic bench at the weekend in the 1-0 victory over Aberdeen likely due to Stephen Welsh’s absence but has been pushing to get in the first team.

Ange Postecoglou confirmed that Welsh would be out for a few weeks meaning that Lawal will likely continue to be in and around the first team but this situation could once again come down to timing as the league leaders have plenty of cover in central defence as Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt and Moritz Jenz who are available are all likely above Lawal in the pecking order.

There has been a number of players which have made the switch from Scottish to Italian football and made a decent impact so it is no surprise to see Italian clubs look for more talent in Scotland.

Celtic will be keen to keep the player at the club who is contracted to the Scottish champions until 2024.
