Celtic are reported to be showing interest in Archie Brown of Lausane.
The left-back moved to Switzerland in July 2021 after being freed by Derby County where he has successfully relaunched his career.
Coming through the ranks at Derby he played six matches in the 2019/20 UEFA Youth League but never made the first team at Pride Park.
Celtic signed Alexandro Bernabei to compete with Greg Taylor last summer but recent appearances have suggested that the Argentinian isn’t ready to step in or fully challenge the former Kilmarnock defender.
In the Daily Mail, Stephen McGowan writes:
First choice Rangers left-back Borna Barisic is poised for talks with Michael Beale over his future this summer. Entering the final 12 months of his contract, the next transfer window represents the last chance for the Ibrox club to attract a significant fee for the 30-year-old.
Celtic have also compiled data on Brown. While Scotland left-back Greg Taylor has secured the position as first choice, Argentine back-up Alexandro Bernabei has yet to show that he can make an impact in Glasgow.
In previous transfer windows Ange Postecoglou has been a man with a plan bringing players in early to give them maximum time to adapt.
Last December Alistair Johnstone and Yuki Kobayashu took part in a week of warm weather training in the Algarve before their moves were fully registered with the Canadian making his debut on January 2 at Ibrox.
The combination of guaranteed Champions League football and working under Postecoglou should prove attractive to Brown but offers from Italy and Germany will also be on interest with the player under contract until June 2025.
