The Scottish Champions are also looking at Brighton midfielder Dale Stephens.

The 26-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season and has so far resisted attempts by the English Championship club to tie him down to a new deal. Burnley are also interested in the midfielder. (Daily Express)
