Fulham and Bristol City join race for Celtic target Mohammadi

Fulham and Bristol City join race for Celtic target Mohammadi Despite Kieran Tierney nailing down the left-back spot at Celtic Park over the past four years, the Hoops remain in the hunt for a new full back to challenge the Scottish international. The club have been interested in Milad Mohammadi over the past two transfer windows, and look set to go in for the Iran international once again in the summer. The Akhmat Grozny left-back is out of contract at the end of the season and could possibly make the move to Scotland on a free transfer. However, according to Football Insider, Fulham and Bristol City are thought to be monitoring the defender themselves ahead of a possible move.

The England U21 international is being touted as a player who Liverpool see as cover for Andy Robertson at left-back as Alberto Moreno is set to leave the club this summer, even though it appears that the youngster’s long-term future appears to be as a centre back.

The Robins told Southampton that they’d need to pay £15m for Kelly when the Saints made an official enquiry about his availability in January so it appears that will be the asking price for the Reds if they do make a move for the defender.
