Celtic are interested in signing Senegalese forward M’Baye Niang.
The 26-year-old had a disappointing campaign last year and is available for transfer this summer.
Comme indiqué en Italie, l'équipe italienne de Venezia est très très chaud sur M’baye Niang pour un transfert sec. Le Fenerbahce, le Celtic Glasgow et Shanghai Greenland sont interessés par l'attaquant rennais mais à un degré moindre. pic.twitter.com/ovlSF9uzuK

The Rennes striker, who spent time on loan with Al Ahli last season, made just 17 appearances across all competitions, scoring once.
It is evident that he is not a key player for the French outfit, and they are looking to get rid of him permanently.
He has a contract until 2023, and this would be a good time to cash in on him.
Celtic could definitely use some attacking reinforcements, especially if Odsonne Edouard decides to move on.
The French striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.
The Hoops need to bring in a quality replacement, and the signing of Niang would be underwhelming for the fans.
He could prove to be a useful addition to the Celtic team, but they cannot rely on him to lead their attack next season.
Niang has been loaned out to Montpellier, Watford, Genoa, Torino and Al Ahli in recent seasons and could use some stability right now.
The striker needs a fresh start, and a move to Parkhead could help resurrect his career.
