Celtic reportedly agree a fee of up to £8m for Toulouse centre-back Christopher Jullien.

Celtic have reportedly reached an agreement with Toulouse over the transfer of centre-back Christopher Jullien.

The 26-year-old - vice-captain of the French side - is said to have been this summer's top target for Hoops boss Neil Lennon, who has been in Paris this week to get the deal over the line.

According to the Daily Record, Celtic have managed to agree a fee of up to £8m for Jullien, who will now discuss personal terms and undergo a medical with the Scottish side.

The Frenchman featured 34 times for Toulouse last season, contributing one goal against Monaco in a season that saw them narrowly escape relegation from the top flight.

Jullien - touted as the replacement for Dedryck Boyata - has been with Toulouse since 2016 and has two years remaining on his current contract.
