Real Madrid are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Ajer enjoyed an impressive 2019/20 season under Neil Lennon, making 46 appearances as Celtic won the Premiership and League Cup.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Madrid have been ‘keeping tabs on his development’ as they look to replace Sergio Ramos.

Ramos turned 34 in March and is yet to agree fresh terms with one year left on his current deal.

Ajer, meanwhile, has two years left on his deal and could be available for around £25m – which would equal their club-record sale of Kieran Tierney to Arsenal.

Wolves and Leicester have also expressed an interest in the 22-year-old.
