Celtic: Hoops linked with Kristijan Lovric move

Celtic: Hoops linked with Kristijan Lovric move - Celtic

Celtic have now been linked with a move for HNK Gorica winger Kristijan Lovric, according to Croatian football expert Richard Wilson.

The Lowdown: Abada deal confirmed

The Hoops made their first big-money signing under new boss Ange Postecoglou on Wednesday evening.

Liel Abada put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Parkhead, with the 19-year-old winger costing the Hoops around €4m.

The winger left Maccabi Petah Tikva to move to Scotland, and it now seems as if Celtic have set their sights on another wide addition.

The Latest: Lovric rumours

Lovric is 25 years of age and is predominantly a left-winger. He’s scored 44 goals in 96 appearances for his current employers.

According to Wilson, a podcaster and writer on football in Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia, Celtic have spoken over a deal for Lovric and are willing to pay £5m for his services.

He posted this on Twitter on Thursday morning.

“Celtic have spoken via intermediaries re a deal for Kristijan Lovric (that’s been on the cards for ages) but have expressly stated the basis that they will pay £5m (£1m above the asking price) if Gorica will hang on to see if Celtic advance in Europe and afford that”

The Verdict: Exciting times

Lovric, who has one senior cap for Croatia to his name, appears to be a more experienced attacking target.

All of Celtic’s summer signings so far have been 21 years of age or younger, so bringing in Lovric could add some experience to the Hoops’ attacking ranks.

He’s made 124 club appearances during his career and nearly averages a goal every other game.

If Celtic can sign him for £5m, it could turn out to be a shrewd piece of business, especially as his Transfermarkt valuation stands above that at £5.4m – a career-high and he still has two years remaining on his current contract.
