Celtic chasing Bournemouth forward Lys Mousset

Celtic are chasing Bournemouth forward Lys Mousset.

The Daily Mail says the Hoops are exploring a deal for former France Under 21 striker Mousset.

The English Premier League club rate the 23-year-old in the £10million bracket.

Reluctant to smash the £9m record fee paid for Odsonne Edouard last summer, the Scottish champions are prepared to offer players plus cash to secure a deal.

Bournemouth have a long-standing interest in Parkhead full-back Kieran Tierney. Facing a double hernia operation this summer, however, it's understood the Scotland international is not one of the players the Scottish champions are prepared to sacrifice to get Mousset.
