Celtic should test the water to bring Serie A bound Liam Lindsay to Parkhead.

The £1 million rated defender is reportedly joining Brescia from Barnsley in this transfer window.

The Hoops are familiar with Lindsay as he spent the majority of his career with Partick Thistle.

His low price and his highly rated ability should be something that interests Neil Lennon.

Former Hoops midfielder Liam Henderson will be playing in Serie A with Hellas Verona.

The ex-Celt moved to Italy from Glasgow to play for Bari before joining Verona.

Lindsay’s potential team Brescia went one better and won the league to be promoted.

This shows that Lindsay is high in the thinking of manager Massimo Cellino and he believes that the Scot would be Serie A quality.

Celtic and Lennon should know enough about him, even with his time down south, to make a move.

Moved abroad can go either way and it will be a tough ask for Brescia to outperform the rest next season.

Celtic would hand the 23-year-old a comfortable environment in a culture that he is familiar with.

Celtic turning to Scottish players

Recent transfer links are showing The Bhoys are looking inwards when it comes to recruitment.

The last few signings have come from the outer reaches such as Ukraine and USA.

Now, with links to Motherwell’s David Turnbull and Liam Kelly, it looks like Celtic are harnessing home grown talent.

Bringing Lindsay back up will continue to grow a Scottish core at the club.

Successful Celtic teams have always had that drive and determination as they know what it means.

The Hoops will be treading carefully when it comes to Lindsay, however, as they could be losing another potential star to Serie A.
