Celtic: Hoops linked with Aaron Mooy move - Celtic

Celtic have been linked with a move for Shanghai SIPG midfielder Aaron Mooy following Ange Postecoglou’s Parkhead arrival.

The Lowdown: Mooy and Postecoglou’s relationship

The Hoops have already been linked with moves for two players who Postecoglou knows well in Yokohama F. Marinos striker Ado Onaiwu and Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan.

Mooy, whose wife is Scottish, worked under Postecoglou when he was in charge of Australia’s national team.

The 30-year-old now has 42 caps for his country and currently plies his trade at club level for Shanghai SIPG after sealing a move from Brighton last year.

The Latest: Celtic links

Australian outlet SBS claim that Mooy is likely to be on Postecoglou’s radar.

There has already been talk in Shanghai over a potential Hoops approach for the midfielder, who earns a significant salary in China.

A potential transfer fee wouldn’t be significant, according to the report, with Chinese teams aware the current situation in the country is tough for foreign players.

The Verdict: Versatility could prove priceless

Mooy is capable of playing as a defensive, central or attacking midfielder, so should a move to Scotland materialise, he could end up replacing Scott Brown, who has left for Aberdeen or even Ryan Christie, whose contract is up in January and is linked with a summer exit.

The versatile and experienced midfielder has 96 Premier League appearances to his name as well as 94 A-League appearances under his belt.

He also has previous experience of playing in the Scottish Premiership with St Mirren 10 years ago.

It could turn out to be a wise move by Postecoglou in signing a few players he knows well who can instantly adjust to his tactics and create a sense of trust in the dressing room, so it’ll be interesting to see whether these links will go any further over the coming months.
