Celtic close to signing Toulouse centre-back Christopher Jullien

Celtic are reportedly close to securing their second big signing of the summer.

Just days after Motherwell announced midfielder David Turnbull would join the Hoops, a L’Equipe report suggests that Toulouse centre-back Christopher Jullien is very close to putting pen-to-paper on a summer move.

Jullien has two years remaining on his current deal and is believed to be available for €8-10m.

In fact, the report goes on to state that the 26-year-old has taken a recent trip to Celtic Park.

The six-foot-five-inch centre-back spent three seasons at the Ligue 1 side, making 108 appearances, and has been one of the rare bright spots in Alain Casanova’s line-up.
