The Turkish-born Swiss international has been impressive in this season's Champions League, and his performances against Celtic for his club, as well as against Manchester United and Liverpool have alerted a number of sides to his talents.
Already linked with Marseille, Yakin's representative Tosh McKinlay stated that Celtic were interested - but had not yet submitted a bid.
"Celtic are interested in Yakin," said McKinlay. "But there has been no official move for him.
"I've been talking to the general manager at Basel and there are a couple of clubs sniffing around - but no concrete bids yet.
"I'm working with Yakin's brother and agent Ertan, on this and I'm pretty sure he won't be at Basel at the end of this month.
"There were a couple of Premiership clubs interested but it was only tentative.
"There has been nothing concrete from anyone yet."
