Celtic are reportedly ‘targeting’ Gideon Mensah, of Red Bull Salzburg.
The media outlet, Ghana Soccernet, claim the Celts are ready to make a move for the 21-year-old.
The left-back was linked with a move to Spanish giants, Barcelona, after scouts attended a game against Real Madrid, where he played in a friendly.
Barca wanted a loan with the option to buy, but the deal broke down and Salzburg are likely to loan him out to gain some first team experience – to either Celtic, Gent, Zulte Waregem, or Sturm Gratz who are all reportedly targeting the full-back.
Meanwhile, with Celtic set to go to Ibrox on Saturday, Sir Kenny Dalglish predicted what might happen, he said: “I honestly think it will end a score draw, possibly 2-2.
“But whatever the outcome, the Premiership will not be decided on Sunday after just four league games.”
He added about Edouard leading the line, he said: “In contrast, Neil won’t need to go over and over in his head who will lead the line for his team.
“It’s Odsonne Edouard – all day long.
“The young Frenchman cost the club the best part of £9 million from PSG just over a year ago, and he looks every inch the part.
“His free-kick goal the other night against AIK was sensational.
“He has scored against Rangers at Ibrox before, and he will fancy his chances again.
“He is powerful and has a quiet confidence about him. I like him.”
