Celtic fans are buzzing about Christopher Jullien swoop

Celtic fans are excited about the prospect of signing Christopher Jullien during this summer’s transfer window.

The Daily Record reported on Tuesday that a fee has been agreed between the two clubs for the 26-year-old defender, with Neil Lennon later confirming that a deal is close for his signature.

The 6ft 5in centre-back fills a problem position for the Hoops after the departures of Belgian international Dedryck Boyata and Filip Benkovic, and his colossal size has also drawn comparisons from fans to former star Virgil van Dijk.

Celtic fans aren’t happy about Arsenal’s bid for one of their key players…

With plenty of experience in Ligue 1, having made over 100 appearances in the competition, he looks to have the kind of pedigree that should make him a success in the Scottish Premiership.

After the collapse of the deal to bring David Turnbull to Celtic Park, the Frenchman could well be Lennon’s first signing since returning as manager of the Hoops.

Fans are certainly keen to see the deal get over the line, with many taking to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…
