Celtic fans react to links with Toulouse defender Christopher Jullien

According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Celtic are keen on a summer move for Toulouse centre-back Christopher Jullien, and he has already visited the club’s facilities.

Hoops striker and Paris Saint-Germain Academy graduate Odsonne Edouard once played alongside the 26-year-old at Toulouse in 2016-17 during a loan spell, and he definitely would have been instrumental in urging the defender to come have a look at the club ahead of a potential switch.

Jullien seems keen on leaving the French outfit, but Celtic will have to part with around £7 million to £9 million to have a chance of luring him to Parkhead.

Hoops faithful would love to have a quality defender to come replace Dedryck Boyata and Filip Benkovic, and here is how some of them on Twitter reacted to the reports that a move for the Frenchman could be on the cards:

At 6ft 5in, the former Auxerre and Freiburg centre-back, who was part of 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup-winning squad brings quality, physical presence and aerial dominance to the table, and Celtic can’t afford to miss out on him.
