Celtic are continuing their pursuit in their attempts to sign forward Daizen Maeda and midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi, Anthony Joseph reports.
The Lowdown: Maeda and Ideguchi profiled
Maeda and Ideguchi are plying their trade in Japan’s J1 League, with the pair both regulars in 2021.
The Latest: Joseph’s tweet
Sky Sports reporter Joseph took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to share a number of Hoops updates.
One of those was on Maeda and Ideguchi, on which he said:
“Celtic are continuing their pursuit of Yokohama F Marinos forward Daizen Maeda and Gamba Osaka midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi.”
The Verdict: Nicholson not giving up
January looks set to be a busy first transfer window for interim CEO Michael Nicholson, and it seems as if he is doing everything he can to bring a number of Japanese stars to Scotland to join Kyogo Furuhashi.
Reo Hatate looks like he could be the first J1 League arrival in the New Year with the 24-year-old keen on a Parkhead swoop.
However, it seems as if Nicholson and co may need to work harder to make a breakthrough in any moves for Maeda and Ideguchi, with the pair possibly bolstering Postecoglou’s midfield and attacking ranks even further.
