Celtic: Hoops pushing for Vinicius Souza

Celtic: Hoops pushing for Vinicius Souza -Celtic News

Celtic are now pressing hard to sign Lommel SK midfielder Vinicius Souza, according to The Daily Record’s Keith Jackson.

The Lowdown: Busy summer

Ange Postecoglou has wasted no time in adding to his title-winning squad ahead of his second season in charge at Parkhead.

Loan moves for Cameron Carter-Vickers, Daizen Maeda and Jota have all been made permanent, while goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist and left-back Alexandro Bernabei have also made the move to Glasgow.

Those five permanent deals have set Celtic back just over £18m, and it looks as if Postecoglou doesn’t want to stop there.

The Latest: Souza update

Jackson shared a story late on Tuesday evening regarding Celtic and Souza.

He claimed that talks have been ongoing between the Hoops and Souza’s representatives, adding that Celtic are now ‘pressing hard’ for the midfielder to ‘put his cards on the table once and for all’.

However, reports since have suggested that PSV are on course to win the race for the Brazilian’s services, although nothing is yet to be confirmed.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Postecoglou appears to be after a ‘physical enforcer to beef up his midfield options’, and Souza, labelled an ‘athletic’ player by Lawrence Shankland and a ‘freak’ by scout and analyst Mikail Serin, seems to be at the top of his list.

The 23-year-old is at the top of his game with a £4.05m Transfermarkt valuation and can play in central or defensive midfield roles.

Souza has even turned out as a centre-back during his career, so would provide plenty of versatility in Scotland, and it looks as if the Hoops are extremely keen to make him their sixth summer signing, so fingers crossed there can be a breakthrough in talks soon.
