Rodgers is in the market for a centre-back as he seeks a long-term replacement for captain Wes Morgan.

He is also looking to bolster at the position following the departure of Harry Maguire to Manchester United in a £80 million move this past summer.

Ajer has been at Celtic for over three years after moving from Start for a £650,000 fee.

An attacking midfielder in his homeland, Celtic converted him to a defender and he's been a star for Neil Lennon's side this campaign.
