Celtic reportedly set Kristoffer Ajer's asking price at £18m, amid speculation regarding interest from AC Milan.

Celtic are reportedly prepared to sell defender Kristoffer Ajer for £18m.

While the Norway international is a key man at the Glasgow giants, there is an acknowledgement that the centre-back will eventually move to a bigger club.

Leicester City and AC Milan have both been linked with an approach for the 22-year-old, who has two years remaining on his contract.

According to Calciomercato, this has resulted in Celtic setting an asking price of £18m ahead of the next transfer window.

Although Neil Lennon would prefer not to sell Ajer, at least one big-money departure may be required in order to fund moves for other players.

Since costing just £500,000 in July 2016, Ajer has made 129 appearances in all competitions.
