CELTIC midfielder Olivier Ntcham is attracting attention from West Ham, according to French sports paper L’Equipe.
They report the London club have been watching the progress of the Frenchman since his £4.5million switch from Manchester City last season.
Ntcham has taken over from Stuart Armstrong, sold to Southampton for £7million last month, and is already showing signs of dovetailing with his compatriots Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard in an exciting Hoops treble-act.
The classy Under-21 international was excellent in the 3-1 Champions League qualifying win over Rosenborg at Parkhead in midweek where he netted a memorable goal to put Brendan Rodgers’ side into the lead.
Edouard added the others as the team now prepare for Wednesday’s return leg in Trondheim.
The champions are likely to resist any move for Ntcham while they will also hold urgent talks with Dedryck Boyata when he returns to training on Monday.
The centre-back has been on extended leave after playing for Belgium in the World Cup Finals in Russia.
Boyata, 27, who is out of contract next summer, has been linked with Fulham and French outfit Lyon.
