With a new era underway at Celtic Park and regaining the Scottish Premiership crown going to be firmly at the top of the agenda, it should come as no surprise that Celtic are being heavily linked with a number of different moves this summer.
Of course, with the transfer window being open, there will be plenty of different stories being produced, especially with Ange Postecoglou having recently arrived at the Bhoys’ new manager.
The manager, who was previously of Yokohama F Marinos in Japan and has extensive experience in Australia, will likely want to put his own stamp on things in Glasgow concerning the green half of the city, but whether he makes the additions and changes that have a positive impact immediately remains to be seen. Naturally, there will be many that watch what the Greek-Australian does with keen interest, especially those who decide to use a Big Free Bet on the Hoops throughout the upcoming season.
Indeed, there are a number of transfer rumours to have already been floated about suggesting where and who Postecoglou may look to target, with media outlets in Scotland and across the world all appearing to have stories about potential transfer movements that could happen.
Sportske Novosti are a Croatian media outlet and they have recently claimed that Celtic look poised to add to their defensive ranks with the addition of Mario Vuskovic from Hajduk Split. However, the 19-year-old is not expected to come cheap, as the Bhoys are believed to be paying around £4.3 million plus additional add-ons to sign him on a contract for four years that is worth around £12,000 a week.
Unfortunately, if Postecoglou had wanted to trim down his squad, Olivier Ntcham may not be an individual that they are able to clear off the books in an easy fashion. The Scottish Sun have claimed that Greek outfit, AEK Athens, have decided to pull out of a move for the midfielder after learning that the Hoops would be commanding a fee for the 25-year-old, despite having agreed personal terms and having spoken to the Frenchman about a move for weeks and weeks.
It has been revealed that Postecoglou believes there will be some players in the Celtic squad already at the club that will find it difficult to get to grips with his management style, with the Scotsman reporting that some could look to leave the club once they have had a taste of what the manager provides them with.
However, one way in which the Greek-Australian boss may look to counter that is to take a look at the “fantastic talents” that are available within the part of the world that he is familiar with, potentially unearthing a new gem for Celtic and one that can be key in helping to get the Glaswegians back to the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
