Celtic attacker Ryan Christie will be flattered by reported interest from OGC Nice, according to Alex McLeish.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former cotland manager said the French side will be splashing the cash after a recent takeover to compete with the “big guns”.
The Sun report that Christie is Nice’s top transfer target after a recent trip to watch him play for the Hoops.
The Ligue 1 side, who are managed by Arsenal legend Patrick Vieria, value the attacking midfielder at £10million but are hopeful of a cut-price deal.
Asked by Football Insider whether he could see Christie moving to France, McLeish said: “I know Ryan personally but not knowing how he feels about the whole thing.
“I know his Dad played for Celtic as well for a wee while and Ryan Christie has been an outstanding performer over the last year or so.
