Celtic have made contact with Egypt international Afsha’s representatives over a move to Parkhead, according to a fresh claim from journalist Mark Hendry.
The Lowdown: Afsha linked with Celtic
The Hoops are currently on a break from Premiership action, with the World Cup the main point of focus at the moment. Afsha – full name Mohamed Magdy – is not taking part in Qatar, though, due to Egypt’s failure to qualify for the tournament.
The Latest: Celtic make contact
The reporter tweeted:
“EXCLUSIVE! Celtic contact Afsha representatives over January transfer as Ange Postecoglou eyes further additions.”
The Verdict: More depth for Postecoglou
Afsha could be a shrewd potential acquisition by Celtic as Ange Postecoglou looks to continue building a squad which can compete both domestically and in Europe.
Afsha could add an extra attacking spark for Celtic, invariably taking up an offensive midfield role, providing ammunition for team-mates and also chipping in with goals himself.
