Celtic: Hoops in talks over £2million deal for Mohanad Jeahze

Celtic: Hoops in talks over £2million deal for Mohanad Jeahze -Celtic News

Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has provided an update regarding Celtic and the pursuit of Hammarby left-back Mohanad Jeahze, with the Hoops in negotiations over a £2million move. 

The lowdown: Hoops officials visit Sweden

The Hoops have been heavily linked with a move for the Iraq international in recent weeks as Ange Postecoglou attempts to kickstart the summer transfer business.

Born in Sweden, the 25-year-old has spent his entire professional career in the Scandinavian nation, winning the national cup in 2021.

Hoops officials were even sent to the player’s club recently and Hammarby’ s own sporting director, Jesper Jansson, admitted that there is ‘certainly an interest’.

Now, a move to Scotland could be edging ever closer for the four-cap ace, who was hailed as ‘really class’ by teammate Darijan Bojanic…

The latest: Joseph reveals £2m talks

Taking to Twitter with a fresh update, Joesph has suggested that the deal is close to coming to fruition for the Hoops, with talks well underway and a £2m offer ‘on the table’.

“Celtic are in advanced talks with Hammarby over a deal to sign left-back Mohanad Jeahze. It’s understood the 25-year-old Iraq international told the Swedish club he wants to move to Scotland. A deal in the region of £2m is on the table & talks have progressed quickly today.”

The verdict: Shrewd capture

The Bhoys look set to embark on a crucial summer as Postecoglou bolsters the Celtic Park ranks ready for Champions League football.

Described as possessing an ‘elite mentality’ by Alternativ Hammarby (via Everything Celtic) on Twitter, the swashbuckling full-back has scored once and provided five assists in 14 appearances this season, indications of a desire to attack that would be perfectly suited to Postecoglou’s system at Parkhead.

Overall, the Iraqi ace has earned a magnificent 7.63 Sofascore rating so far in the 2022 Allsvenskan, making 2.3 interceptions, 2.7 tackles and 1.2 clearances on average per game to highlight his defensive acumen to accompany his attacking prowess.

To put those numbers in perspective, no player in the Celtic squad with more than two appearances averages more than 1.6 tackles or 1.6 interceptions per game.

Will Celtic win the title?

Yes, 100%

Jeahze – who was also a reported target for Polish outfit Lech Poznan – has a little over 14 months remaining on his deal in Sweden and at the mooted £2million should be regarded as a smart signing who will perhaps arrive as direct competition for Greg Taylor.
