Celtic face strong competition in the race to sign Brandon Soppy.
The Rennes defender is in the final year of his contract but despite playing less than a dozen first team matches is being talked about in the £4m price range.
Celtic have been linked with the teenager for more than a year but have recently been credited with an interest in his team-mate Sacha Boey who spent last season on loan at Dijon.
Udinese are not gonna sign Luis Maximiano from Sporting. No agreement. New goalkeeper will be Silvestri from Verona for €3m + €1m bonus. ?
Udinese/Watford are also interested in Rennes right back Brandon Soppy [he’s in Celtic list too with Aurelio Buta and George Baldock]. ???????

Right-back is an area of concern for Ange Postecoglou, in the final warm up match to the season, at home to Preston, Tony Ralston and Lee O’Connor were given time in that position.

Osaze Urhoghide was also tried in that position during the pre-season matches in Wales but none of those three options made a compelling case to start against Midtjylland on Tuesday night.
Celtic can register two new signings before 11pm on Monday but it would be a high risk strategy to sign players one day then give them their debut in a Champions League qualifier the next evening.
