    Celtic have joined the list of clubs pursuing Brazilian holding midfielder Vinicius Souza.

    The 22-year-old is 60-per-cent owned by the City Football Group, the Manchester City parent company from which Celtic hired coach Ange Postecoglou and head of recruitment Mark Lawwell.

    Placed with Lommel - the City Group's Belgian club - Souza impressed during a season-long loan at KV Mechelen.

    Expected to head back out on loan next season, Celtic have scheduled discussions with the Brazilian's representatives.

    Fenerbahce, Club Brugge and Bologna have also declared an interest, with the Scottish champions facing a battle to persuade the former Flamengo central midfielder that his immediate future lies in the SPFL.

    Postecoglou is in the market for midfielders after Nir Bitton and Tom Rogic left Glasgow at the end of the season, with Kevin N'Doram of Metz another option.

    Keen to strengthen in a number of areas, former Dundee United keeper Benjamin Siegrist is in talks with the champions following the departure of Greek international Vasilis Barkas.

    Left-back is also a priority, with Argentine Francisco Ortega and Mohanad Jeahze of Hammarby the subject of positive scouting reports.

    Celtic also hope to complete permanent deals for winger Jota and central defender Cameron Carter-Vickers and remain in the market for another ball-playing centre-half and a striker.

    Quick, aggressive, physical, decent dribbling, defending and passing.

    We don’t talk about the shooting.

    Looks similar in stature to a Bitton but quicker and more aggressive.

    Tell you what, some of the targets we're getting linked to are proper stauner material.

    This one could be a goer as well, due to the city links. Only thing that slightly puts me off is that he's only expected to head out on loan again, would ideally be a straight purchase or a loan to buy.

    The standard of players we’re linked to now is incredible.

    Fucken yes please!

    This guy looks perfect for what we need.

    Height to help on defending set pieces.

    Physicality and speed, the way he gets around the pitch and muscles players off the ball is first class. With Cal and this lad, we’d certainly be in the midfield battle and in the Champions League we could possibly carry the lack of speed that Turnbull and O’Riley possess, but not lose our creativity.

    This guys passing looks incredible, the likes of Jota, Maeda and Abada will dine out on his shifts of play getting 1 v 1’s.

    This is our missing piece in midfield, get it done Mark!

    Looks like it would be only be a loan deal though. Don't like City using us to develop their players. Looks a player though

    Ange has previous for working with Brazilians too, so he might feel that bit more confident dipping into that market (albeit now via Europe).

    All depends if there is a buy option.
