Celtic: Hoops almost signed Mario Vuskovic

Celtic: Hoops almost signed Mario Vuskovic - Celtic

Celtic almost signed Hadjuk Split centre-back Mario Vuskovic, according to Croatian outlet Dalmatinski.

The Lowdown: Starfelt breakthrough

The Hoops had a busy Wednesday when it comes to transfers. They brought in winger Liel Abada from Maccabi Petah Tikva and also made inroads when it comes to defensive reinforcements.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed on Wednesday morning that Celtic have reached an agreement with Rubin Kazan to sign Carl Starfelt in a deal worth €5m.

Starfelt has already agreed on personal terms and an official announcement is expected soon, according to Romano, which has seemingly had a knock-on effect on Vuskovic.

The Latest: Vuskovic report

Croatian outlet Dalmatinski shared a story on Wednesday regarding Celtic’s move for Starfelt and what that means for Vuskovic, who has been heavily linked with a Parkhead switch of his own.

They claimed that a move for Vuskovic was ‘almost a done deal but then it all stopped’.

Vuskovic, valued at £5.85m by Transfermarkt, is now being eyed by Dutch side Feyenoord.

The Verdict: Should Celtic sign both?

It seems as if the Hoops will be bringing in Starfelt over Vuskovic, but surely there is an argument to sign both, especially with Kristoffer Ajer’s Parkhead situation.

Brentford are set to make a new £15m bid for Ajer, who wants to leave Glasgow this summer, so the Hoops could possibly sign both Starfelt and Vuskovic with those funds with some money left to spend.

Bringing in two centre-backs could be a smart move if Ajer leaves, as that would then take Ange Postecoglou to five senior central defenders ahead of the new season.
