    Celtic are eyeing £4 million-rated Olympiacos full-back Omar Elabdellaoui.

    The Scottish champions have earmarked the Norwegian international as a target in their January transfer push.

    Elabdellaoui has moved firmly onto the Parkhead radar as the club hunts a long-term replacement for Swede Mikael Lustig.

    The defender, who has 34 caps for Norway, has emerged as a suitable option, but he would be ineligible to play in the Europa League having starred in the tournament for his current club.


    Elabdellaoui has a contract with the Greek outfit until 2021, but Celtic are interested.

    The Hoops have also looked at Belgian international Timothy Castagne

    Ellabdellaoui does not have such a prohibitive price tag and is on the list of targets.

    Hoops scouts have drawn up a list of other possibilities with Olympiacos defender Elabdellaoui, 27, emerging as a real contender.

    The full-back started his career at Manchester City and also played for Ronny Deila’s former club Stromgodset in Norway.

    Contrary to what that article states, he would be eligible to play in the Europa League.

    Seems like a decent replacement and if they have to pay 4m it would be a reasonable price for an area that needs freshening up.
