Celtic want 23-year-old international defender, Premier League competition

Glasgow Celtic has been listed as a possible destination for highly rated PSV Eindhoven defender Joshua Brenet, but the Bhoys face competition from Watford and a host of other European sides for the 23-year-old, according to De Telegraaf.

The Parkhead outfit went through 2016-17 unbeaten, winning a momentous domestic treble in Brendan Rodgers’ first campaign in charge of the Scottish side.

The Celtic manager has been vocal in his desire to add quality to the Hoops squad over the next two months and Jonny Hayes has been signed from Aberdeen.

Brenet has impressed for PSV in recent years and as such is being linked with a move away from the Eredivisie as scouts return glowing reports on him.

An enterprising right-back, the twice-capped Netherlands international would provide competition for places for Cristian Gamboa and Mikael Lustig at Celtic if he joined.

However, the Bhoys are joined in their admiration for Brenet by Watford, Fiorentina and Udinese, among others, according to the Dutch report.
