Celtic: Hoops closing in on Sead Haksabanovic signing

Celtic: Hoops closing in on Sead Haksabanovic signing -Celtic News

Celtic are closing in on the signing of Rubin Kazan winger Sead Haksabanovic, with reliable journalist Anthony Joseph confirming that it is nearly agreed.

The Lowdown: Haksabanovic move mooted

The Hoops continued their perfect start to the Premiership season on Sunday afternoon, seeing off Hearts with a 2-0 win at Parkhead.

Ange Postecoglou is not resting on his laurels, though, with more transfer business expected this month and Haksabanovic one of those strongly linked with a move to the club.

It now looks as though the Rubin Kazan forward is closer than ever to becoming a Hoops player.

The Latest: Transfer nearly done

Taking to Twitter, Sky Sports journalist Joseph shared Postecoglou’s comments regarding the prospective signing of Haksabanovic:

“UPDATE: Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has told @SkySportsNews that a deal for Rubin Kazan winger Sead Haksabanovic is getting closer. It’s understood the final fee is still to be agreed between the two clubs. Once this is done, everything is in place for medical/signing.”

The Verdict: Strong summer addition

Haksabanovic could be exactly what Celtic are seeking in the remainder of the summer transfer window, providing them with an added spark in the final third, especially when it comes to the Champions League.

At 23, he is at a perfect age, possessing some experience (184 senior career outings) but with his best years likely to still be ahead of him.

Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

Throughout his club and international career, he has averaged 2.1 shots and 1.9 key passes per game, which suggests that he can make a telling impact in the final third. For comparison, only three Celtic players have exceeded that shooting average in the early weeks of the Premiership season.

Haksabanovic’s versatility can make him an even shrewder signing, too, with the winger able to thrive on both flanks, centrally and even in a defensive midfield role throughout his career.
