Celtic have been linked with a move for Club Atletico Independiente right-back Fabricio Bustos by French outlet Homme du Match.

The Latest: Celtic links
According to Homme du Match, Celtic have been offered the chance to sign Bustos, along with Brazilian side Santos.
French club Nice have also been linked, but it’s Celtic who are reportedly in pole position to sign the South American.
Club Atletico Independiente would want to receive around €4m (£3.4m) to part ways with Bustos.
The Verdict: Buta alternative?
Celtic have been linked with Royal Antwerp right-back Aurelio Buta in recent weeks, with reports suggesting a £3m deal was agreed at the end of July.
However, as we know, Buta is yet to be announced as a Hoops player, so Bustos could be a potential alternative target.
Bustos is a similar age as Buta and both can play further forward, so perhaps the Argentine could be a smart alternative if Celtic are having struggles getting a deal for Buta over the line.
