With Spanish side Celta Vigo keen on the 26-year-old, with other French clubs also showing an interest Toulouse have put a £10million price tag on the player.

Jullien made 35 appearances for the French side last season but has yet to make his mind up on whether he would be keen to move to Parkhead, according to local paper La Dépêche du Midi.

Celtic could be set for a huge windfall if Arsenal meet their £25million valuation of Kieran Tierney.

Boss Neil Lennon has targeted the defence as a priority with a right-back also required following the departure of Mikael Lustig.
