According to The Times, Ange Postecoglou sees the Australian international as a player to improve his squad.

The Celtic boss has been on record expressing his admiration for the forward.

“He’s done really well for the national team so I’m well aware of him,” Postecoglou said. “He’s a good player and it’s not easy playing for Australia.”

There could be competition from Saudi Arabia with Al-Faisaly linked with a move last month and The Times report notes there is now further interest from the region.

Such a move would be attractive from a financial perspective.

Boyle, who turns 29 in April, signed a new Hibs deal back in August which ties him down until 2024, while giving the Easter Road club security if a sale was to happen.

The winger has been one of the best players this season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions, including a League Cup hat-trick against Rangers.

Boyle is settled at Hibs and has a young family with his wife Rachel a key player for the club’s women’s team.

"It's no secret what the club means to me and my family,” he said when he signed his new contract.

"It's been some journey since and I still think my best years are ahead of me.

“Everyone can see the desire from the club, the players, and the management staff to progress and challenge for trophies and European football; that excites me and that's where I want to be."
