Celtic: Hoops now in ‘advancing talks’ for Alexandro Bernabei

Celtic: Hoops now in ‘advancing talks’ for Alexandro Bernabei -Celtic News

BBC journalist Fraser Fletcher has revealed that Celtic are now in ‘advancing talks’ to bring Lanus defender Alexandro Bernabei to the Scottish Premiership.

The Lowdown: Opening bid rejected

The 21-year-old still has just over 12 months remaining on his contract with the Argentine giants, but there has been plenty of speculation surrounding his future at the Lanus City Stadium in recent days after he was left out of their match-day squad twice in a row.

The Hoops have been heavily linked with a move for the starlet, and it was reported that they even had an official opening bid for their target rejected. Following a fresh update, it appears as though the Glasgow outfit have come back for a second bite at the cherry, and it’s news that fans just might want to hear.

The Latest: Celtic close to sealing Bernabei move

Taking to Twitter, Fletcher revealed that Celtic have been ‘in contact’ with Bernabei’s agents and now have a strong chance of being able to complete a deal. He wrote:

“Celtic are now advancing talks for Alexandro Bernabei from Club Atlético Lanus. First bid was below but Celtic now back in and moving.

“They are in contact with the players representatives/Lanus and things are moving closer.”

Celtic fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: A risk worth taking

Celtic are believed to be on the hunt for a new left-back as Ange Postecoglou ramps up his transfer efforts ahead of the start of the new season, and Bernabei could be the ideal candidate to provide some serious competition for Greg Taylor.

The £2.97m-rated ace has never played in Europe before, nor has he got any kind of experience at this level, but has an impressive record at Lanus, providing ten assists and scoring four goals during his time at the club, via Transfermarkt.

Would Bernabei be a good coup for Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This kind of attacking prowess highlights the qualities and pace that Bernabei can have down the flank, and that is something that could fit the Australian’s system perfectly.
