Celtic are preparing to offer Paris Saint-Germain around £2m for France Under19 international midfielder Edouard Michut, according to an update on Sky Sports.

The breaking news reads as follows:

Celtic are targeting a deal for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Edouard Michut.

One source has told Sky Sports News that the Scottish club are preparing an offer in the region of £2m (€2.5m) for the 19-year-old.

Michut is a France U19 midfielder who has been impressing in PSG’s academy – but he has also played six times for PSG in Ligue 1 and twice in the Coupe de France.

He was in and around the first-team squad last season and also scored twice in eight appearances in the UEFA youth league.

Reports in France at the end of the season claimed he has become frustrated at the lack of a pathway into the first team at the Parc des Princes and is looking to leave this summer.

Sky Sports Reporter Anthony Joseph added: “Celtic are targeting PSG midfielder Edouard Michut. He is a France U19 international who has played six times for PSG in Ligue 1 and twice in the Coupe de France. Michut is said to be looking to leave this summer for more first team football.”
