Celtic are not alone in their interest, with fellow French teams also keen, but the Parkhead side is the only club to open talks over a potential fee.
Soppy plays right-back for Rennes in the French top flight, featuring nine times in the Ligue 1, and twice in the Champions League.
In Fabrizio Romano’s tweet, he has tipped the french-born to be a ‘huge talent’
The fee is still unknown but Rennes have already rejected a bid worth £4 million from Italian giants, A.S. Roma, back in January of this year, however, he has now entered the last 12 months of his current deal so the hoops have the greater power throughout the negotiations. [GetFootballNewsFrance]
Soppy has also received interest from Borussia Dortmund, it seems that if Celtic do manage to see through the transfer we will have a rising star on our books.
