Celtic are thought to be one of a number of clubs keen on signing Real Valladolid defender Ivan Fresneda.
The Lowdown: Fresneda profiled
Fresneda is just 18 years of age and doesn’t have too much first-team experience under his belt, making just nine senior appearances for his current employers.
The right-back is valued at €1m by Transfermarkt but has a €30m release clause in his contract. The Spaniard’s deal with Real Valladolid runs until 2025, and it looks as if the Hoops are eyeing a potential move.
The Latest: Transfer update
One Spanish outlet shared a transfer update regarding Fresneda in the last 48 hours.
They claimed that Celtic are one of eight clubs across Europe who could be willing to make an offer for the teenager’s services.
The Verdict: Unlikely?
The Hoops recently bolstered their right-back ranks by landing Alistair Johnston from CF Montreal, so a move for Fresneda seems unlikely.
He could also command a club-record fee, which currently stands at €10.3m for Odsonne Edouard, given his €30m release clause and the likes of big European clubs Arsenal, AC Milan and Juventus showing an interest in the teenager.
It could be a name to keep an eye on, however, Ange Postecoglou could be looking at other areas of the pitch after landing Johnston.
