And now another team has joined the transfer race.

O’Riley, who is under contract in Glasgow until 2027, had emerged on Atletico Madrid’s shortlist in January after he impressed Diego Simeone with his performances against his team in the Champions League.

Celtic booted out an offer reported to be around ÂŁ17million for the midfielder during the winter window, with Atletico looking to sign him on an initial loan with an option to buy clause inserted in the deal.

Simeone’s men are still keeping tabs on the Danish international, but they face stiff competition from the likes of Southampton and Leicester from England, as well as Inter Milan and Roma from Italy.
