Celtic are reportedly interested in signing former January target Omar Elabdellaoui as manager Neil Lennon looks to strengthen at right-back this summer.

Celtic's move for Olympiacos right-back Omar Elabdellaoui is reportedly back on.

The 27-year-old had been the subject of interest from Parkhead back in January, before then-Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers opted to sign Jeremy Toljan on loan from Borussia Dortmund instead.

According to the Daily Mail, Elabdellaoui would be willing to take a pay cut on his £35,000-a-week salary to make the move to Celtic Park.

Elabdellaoui recently captained Olympiacos to a 3-0 aggregate victory over Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League third qualifying round.

The Scottish champions signed Hatem Abd Elhamed from Hapoel Be'er Sheva earlier this summer but are keen to further strengthen in the full-back area, with Robert Gummy of Lech Poznan also a target.

Having crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of CFR Cluj on Tuesday night, Celtic required a 114th-minute extra time winner from James Forrest to spare their blushes against Scottish Championship side Dunfermline in the Betfred Cup on Saturday.
