Celtic: Journalist drops Fausto Vera transfer update

Celtic: Journalist drops Fausto Vera transfer update -Celtic News

Celtic have held internal talks over Argentinos Juniors midfielder Fausto Vera and updates could be imminent in the ‘coming days’, according to journalist Fraser Fletcher.

The Lowdown: Vera impresses in homeland

The 22-year-old has matured into a key player for his current side, impressing in a defensive midfield role and winning eight caps for Argentina’s Under-23s.

Vera also appeared three times for Argentina at last year’s Olympics in Japan and has clearly impressed enough to draw links with a move to Celtic in recent times, as well as other clubs.

A new update has now emerged – one that further suggests that the Hoops could look to snap up the midfielder this summer.

The Latest: Celtic eye up move

Writing on Twitter on Monday, Fletcher claimed that Celtic are holding internal discussions about signing Vera, but fans may have to wait a few days for news:

“Fausto Vera is a player Celtic are certainly aware of. He’s been discussed but I have not been told of any bids/offers as of yet. One to watch over coming days.”

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

The Verdict: Strong midfield addition

Midfield is an area of the pitch that still needs strengthening at Celtic this summer, with the departures of the influential Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton leaving an understandable void.

Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

Vera could be the man to help plug that gap, coming in as a long-term acquisition who could both flourish from the off and also be around for many years in front of the defence.

The Argentine has averaged 1.7 tackles and 1.6 interceptions per game for his club in 2022, while an average of one dribble per match also shows he has ability on the ball to accompany his combative style.
