Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph has provided two positive updates on Celtic’s pursuit of striker Georgios Giakoumakis and defender Liam Scales.
The Lowdown: Postecoglou wants three more?
The Daily Record stated on Sunday night that Postecoglou would like a centre-back on loan, a versatile midfielder and a forward, should Odsonne Edouard leave.
That forward could well be Giakoumakis, who has reportedly approached Celtic after talks with Werder Bremen, and it seems as if a move to Parkhead is gathering pace.
How would you rate Celtic's window?
It's been alright!
Not good at all!
The Latest: Joseph’s posts
Joseph took to Twitter to provide an update on Giakoumakis, revealing that Werder Bremen are looking at other options after struggling to finance a deal.
VVV-Venlo’s talks with Celtic for the forward are progressing well, with the Dutch side wanting a 15% sell-on clause included.
Joseph then replied to a fan who asked him about Scales, admitting he doesn’t expect any issues in regards to a transfer going through.
The Verdict: Good news
Centre-back Scales and Giakoumakis, an out and out centre-forward, could go a long way in Postecoglou’s requests of a centre-back, versatile midfielder and forward before the end of the month.
McKay may well make the pair the club’s ninth and tenth Celtic additions relatively soon, which could leave him with an Edouard exit to sort out and a versatile midfielder late in the window.
The quicker those deals can get over the line the better, though, as you’d expect the club wouldn’t want to leave too much business for the final hours.
